History

Gladwyne was settled in 1682 by Welsh Quakers. It was near the Welsh Tract, and was known formerly as "Merion Square". It was given its new name in 1891 in order to imitate the stylish Welsh names of adjoining towns, although the name is meaningless in Welsh. Shortly after the American Civil War, wealthy Philadelphians began to discover Gladwyne, establishing summer homes there. The Welsh Tract, also called the Welsh Barony, was a portion of Pennsylvania settled largely by Welsh-speaking Quakers. ... Welsh redirects here, and this article describes the Welsh language. ...
