Bala Cynwyd PA Real Estate

Welcome to Bala Cynwyd

Bala Cynwyd

Settled in the 1680’s by Quakers from the lake region of northern Wales, the village of Bala Cynwyd was named after the Welsh towns of Bala and Cynwyd. As with most of the communities in the Main Line area, this picturesque village places a premium on education. Bala Cynwyd was originally two separate towns, “Bala” and “Cynwyd” (pronounced “kinwid” or sometimes “kinwood” by the locals). In the early 1900’s a post office was constructed to serve both towns, and by 1906 the towns had merged. Today, Bala Cynwyd residents love the accessibility to Center City, Philadelphia - Bala Cynwyd is a short drive or train ride into the city.
