Cheyney is a community in between Thornbury Township in Delaware County and Thornbury Township in Delaware County, Pennsylvania with a population of around 1,000 people. Cheyney is home to Cheyney University. Both the school and community get their name from the farm of George Cheyney, which became Cheyney University’s campus in 1902. George Cheyney’s Farm was a part of the land grant given to William Penn in 1681. Cheyney University took over and tore down some of the original buildings in the community to make room for the school. These buildings include what used to be the blacksmith’s shop, the general store, the post office, a hotel, and a large bank barn. Cheyney also has the John Cheyney Log Tenet House and Farm and Melrose which are both listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
