Devon is a small town of approximately 7,000 people located about 10 miles west of downtown Philadelphia. It is a desirable area where a large percentage of the residents own their own home. Devon is officially designated as a census designated place – a community that lacks a central government but resembles an incorporated town or village and is used by the Census Bureau for statistical reporting. The government for the Devon-Berwyn area is shared by Tredyffrin Township and Easttown Township. Philadelphia is only a few miles away, with plentiful job opportunities.
Devon is home to the Devon Preparatory School, a private boys school (grades 6 -12). The Devon Horse Show is a world class dressage competition that draws competitors from around the Country and takes place here every May.
