Since its settlement in 1682 by Welsh Quakers, Haverford Township has been transformed from rolling farmland and water-powered mills to unique suburban neighborhoods linked by a common heritage. Historically, the township was known for gunpowder and textile manufacturing. Workers in the Nitre Hall Powder Mill produced powder for the War of 1812 and fabric for the Union army during the Civil War. The maker of nationally known Swell bubble gum is now Haverford Township's only large manufacturing company.

Early photographs of the Philadelphia and West Chester Traction Company and the famous Red Arrow Lines will entertain history and railroad buffs alike. Familiar scenes of Haverford College, Haverford Meeting, and the Grange Estate await readers in this stunning pictorial history.
