Drexelbrook

History

Drexelbrook is a community located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, just outside of the City of Philadelphia.  The area surrounding Drexelbrook was discovered in 1609 by Dutch explorer, Henry Hudson, who had also explored Manhattan Island and the Hudson River.  But once New York’s boundaries were set and the land was taken from the Dutch, King Charles the II of England granted this area to William Penn to expand upon his colony.

The Community Today

As one of the major Philadelphia suburbs, Drexelbrook offers a plethora of housing opportunities for any budget.  Families can settle in Drexelbrook countryside and can enjoy this area’s parks and nature preserves, or they can settle in one of its many housing developments.  Drexelbrook is situated close to Philadelphia and offers commuters easy access to the city via highways and public transportation.  This makes it the perfect suburb for families who work in downtown Philadelphia, but want to get away from the urban hustle.
