Welcome to Norwood Borough!

Norwood has much to offer its residents and neighbors. There are parks and recreational fields, a good mix of retail, restaurants, and services along Chester Pike and Winona Avenue, and public transportation, including the SEPTA 114 bus line and Wilmington/Newark regional rail line. Just minutes from I-95 and the Philadelphia International Airport, our vibrant community combines the best of Delaware County in a 540-acre family-oriented, tree-lined package.

Founded in 1873 by John Cochran, a realtor from Chester, the name comes from the book Norwood or Village life in New England, written by Henry Ward Beecher in 1868. Norwood was incorporated as a Borough on November 6, 1893 out of area formerly part of Ridley Township.
