Positioned in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Downingtown is just over 30 miles from Philadelphia with a population of roughly 8,000 residents. The town was originally named “Milltown” due to the countless number of mills located along Brandywine Creek in its past. Eventually, its name changed to Downingtown which was named after Thomas Downing, an immigrant who owned many of these mills.
Today Downingtown is undergoing a revitalization with many new projects in the works as well as others being proposed. The goal is to develop an enhanced environment for Downingtown’s residents in some of the former mill locations. Namely River Station will provide restaurants, housing and opportunities for commercial businesses with direct access to transit and outdoor trails. By interesting fact, Downingtown was the site of the famous movie “The Blob,” filmed in 1958.
