Lansdowne is a borough in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, about 6 miles southwest from Center City, Philadelphia. The borough has a population of around 10,620, and it has a total area of about 1.18 square miles, all of it being land. The name Lansdowne comes from The Marquess of Lansdowne and it’s sometimes confused with Lansdale. Lansdowne had a spike in its population following the establishment of the railroad stop near the intersection of Lansdowne Avenue and Baltimore Pike in the early 20th century. The borough is mainly residential, with a commercial center near the railroad stop and some industrial buildings, though the industrial buildings have seen a decline in the past few decades.
Lansdowne has previously been called a vacation resort for Philadelphia residents because there used to be an abundance of Victorian homes to stay in and enjoy. Since then, the Victorian homes have become multiple-dwelling apartments. Lansdowne is home to a ton of places that house the arts and other musical organizations. This includes the Lansdowne Symphony Orchestra, The Celebration Theater, The Lansdowne Folk Club, Jamey’s House of Music, and the Lansdowne Arts Festival. The borough has a farmer’s market as well, which runs rain or shine on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm between Memorial Day and Halloween. There are several buildings in Lansdowne listed on the National Register of Historic Places; they are the Lansdowne Theater, Twentieth Century Club of Lansdowne, Henry Albertson Subdivision Historic District, and the Lansdowne Park Historic District.
