All About

Living in Darby, PA

East of Philadelphia, apartment residents in Darby have a number of historic attractions to enjoy, as the area is deeply rooted in American history.

Originally settled in the 1660s by the original Quaker settlers that were led to the region by Pennsylvania's founder, William Penn, over the years, Darby has played an important role in the history of the country. Darby apartment residents live amongst history, as their community served an integral role in the anti-slavery movements of the 1780s. A number of local residents provided aid to "freedom seekers," according to the historical society, during this time, either housing escaped slaves or ushering them on to safety in other parts of the country. Darby was a frequented spot on the Underground Railroad. Apartment residents in Darby can pay their respects to many of the freedom seekers and their helpers who lay at rest in the burial ground on Main Street.

Today, Darby apartment residents not only appreciate the town's history, but its natural qualities. Darby Creek is a quiet, winding body of water that some local apartment renters frequent for its serenity and tranquility. On top of that, the green space around the creek is a popular destination for area hikers and fans of the outdoors.

While on walks through Darby's woods, local apartment residents might also come across the Trolley Bridge, which was built in 1904 to serve the town's burgeoning transportation industry. The bridge was located on the route of the Darby Trolley, an electric rail service that in the past served as a popular mode of transportation, and that today serves as a relic of Darby's charming past.
