Wynnewood, Pennsylvania is a suburban community located outside of Philadelphia in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania. Wynnewood was named in 1691 for Dr. Thomas Wynne, William Penn’s physician and the first Speaker of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Wynnewood is one of the many neighborhoods on the Pennsylvania Main Line, and encompasses suburban residential neighborhoods as well as institutions such as Lankenau Hospital, St. Charles Seminary, Palmer Theological Seminary, and Friends’ Central School. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers lived in Wynnewood while attending Lower Merion High School, located in nearby Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Billionaire Walter H. Annenberg, media mogul, philanthropist, arts patron, and ambassador to the court of St. James passed away at his home in Wynnewood in 2002. Wynnewood has approximately 4,900 homes and 12,700 residents.Residents of Wynnewood cooperate with those of adjacent Ardmore in many ways, one of which is the ArdWood Civic Association. South Ardmore Park is partly in Wynnewood, and partly in Ardmore. This park is the site of a free or low-cost summer camp, sporting activities, walking paths, and a verdant setting.Wynnewood itself is mostly residential, with its shopping in various clusters. The largest shopping center in Wynnewood is, unsurprisingly, Wynnewood Shopping Center, home to Borders, Genuardi’s, EB Games, and various other shops. Many “Wynnewoodians” go to other districts of the Main Line, like Ardmore or Narberth, for shopping, because Wynnewood itself is so residential.To learn about Main Line Luxury Properties contact Mary Beth Hurtado at 610-608-3119 or Request Info.
