About the Location
While originally a center for the area farming community, the Royersford borough grew into a small iron and manufacturing center and incorporated in 1879. Today, it is a charming bedroom community straddling the main 422 Expressway. Royersford belongs to the Philadelphia Metro Area, the 6th largest in the nation with a combined population of 6.1 million residents.
Philadelphia served as the nation’s first capital and cultural center before being replaced in these roles by Washington, D.C., and New York City, respectively. Since the Industrial Revolution, the city has prospered as an important port and manufacturing center. Today, it’s part of an economic corridor of large cities stretching down the East Coast from Boston to Washington, D.C. The modern downtown of the Philadelphia metroplex is adjacent to a large historic district, while its local higher education institutions, the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and Temple University offer a quality education. The economically diverse region is dominated by the chemical industry and financial services, with a steady economic and fair job-growth potential.
The outstanding cultural amenities, cost of living, and central East Coast location make both Royersford and the Philadelphia metro area attractive locations.
