Welcome to Bala Cynwyd

Bala Cynwyd, PA is located in the historic “Welsh Tract” of Pennsylvania and is one of the largest residential districts on the Main Line. It was once two separate towns, Bala and Cynwyd, but after decades of success working together, the two towns merged into the current version that is loved today.

Much of the town’s rich history is preserved in its beautiful stone mansions, some of which date back to the 1880s. Along with stunning architecture, Bala Cynywd boasts a bustling town center filled with shops, restaurants, and well-known Philly Food Tours stops. And since it’s located right on the northwestern edge of Philadelphia, this seemingly small town is actually quite close to big-city opportunities. If you’re looking for a town that has a little bit of everything, we’d recommend starting your search right here in Bala Cynwyd.
