Wynnewood

Wynnewood is a suburban unincorporated community, west of Philadelphia, that straddles Lower Merion TownshipMontgomery County and Haverford TownshipDelaware County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was named in 1691 for Dr. Thomas WynneWilliam Penn's physician and the first Speaker of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Lower Merion Township is the fifth-most-affluent town in the United States.

The largest shopping center in Wynnewood is the Wynnewood Shopping Center (housing an Old NavyBed Bath and Beyond, Mad Mex, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse (formerly Borders Book Store) and (formerly Genuardi's) Giant, John Troncelliti Barber Shop, GAMESTOP, along with several eateries and smaller stores). Other shopping venues in the suburb include Wynnewood Square and The Whole Foods Shopping Center (named for a market there), both on East Lancaster Avenue. As Wynnewood is primarily a residential community, its residents visit other districts of the Main Line, such as Ardmore or Narberth, for shopping.

Opposite the Wynnewood Shopping Center is the Wynnewood train station. Built in the 1870s, the vintage regional rail (SEPTA) train station (MP 7.5) was designed by Wilson Brothers and Company for the Pennsylvania Railroad. Towns on the lower "Main Line" adjacent to Wynnewood include OverbrookMerionNarberthArdmoreHaverford, and Bryn Mawr.

Wynnewood is also home to one the principal three teaching hospitals that serve Philadelphia's Main Line. Along with the eponymous Bryn Mawr and Paoli Memorial hospitals, Lankenau Hospital, on Lancaster Avenue (Route 30) in Wynnewood near the Overbrook border, has traditionally been affiliated with either Jefferson[5] or Drexel[6] colleges of medicine and is always (with Bryn Mawr and Paoli) on the list of the nation's top community hospitals.
