Brief History

Queens Highway was designed by an early settler, creating a stretch that went to Philadelphia. George Washington and his troops used it in their 1777 confrontation with the British. After the American Revolutionary War, people migrated here in increasing numbers to own Ridley Park properties.

Transportation has always been big business in the area. In fact, the borough’s name is attributed to an executive with the Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad. The exec was looking to expand his rail throughout the region in the same way Pennsylvania Railroad’s 30th Street Station had become a major transport hub.
