Malvern is a borough in Chester County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 3,059 at the 2000 census.
History

Malvern is the site of the Paoli Massacre during the American Revolutionary War.

Named after The Malvern Hills, close to the Welsh border in England, Malvern was originally settled by Welsh Settlers in the 1600s. William Penn Sold them the land for 10 cents an acre, along with the rest of the land on the Welsh tract, or the Main Line. Malvern was incorporated as a borough in 1889, from portions of Willistown Township.

Malvern is the last stop of the original Main Line railroad into Philadelphia, PA. Today, the railroad has expanded several more stations west of Malvern, but none are associated with the Main Line, and Malvern is still considered the end of the Main Line.

Present Day

Malvern, like many other of the Philadelphia suburbs surrounding it, has been under heavy development since about 2002, shortly after United States housing bubble had taken affect elsewhere in the country. Several new housing developments, consisting mainly of McMansions, have resulted in increased overcrowding of the main line suburb. Efforts have been made since the late 1990s to urge local politicians and legislature to implement a construction moratorium that would prevent developers from being able to build in Malvern. However, no such moratorium has yet been established.
