Media In-home Care Services
Located within Delaware County, Media, Pennsylvania is a town 13 miles from the city of Philadelphia and is known for being “Everybody’s Hometown.” Media was given its name from being the county seat holder within Delaware County. The borough of Media was established due to the division of Chester County, Pennsylvania in 1789 and the eastern half becoming Delaware County. The original land of Media was established by the combining of four farms coming together as one, totaling in all 480 acres, and the borders of the borough have stayed the same since. In 1854, Philadelphia reached out to Media and built a railroad line through the borough leading to more foot traffic and as many as 50 trains passing through the town limits. With SEPTA Rail through the middle of Media, Interstate 476, and the Philadelphia National Airport within 15 miles there are numerous ways of traveling to this town for all it has to offer.
