Sharon Hill is located in southeastern Delaware County. The borough is ideally located for easy access to metropolitan Philadelphia with nearby Interstate highways and convenient transportation by bus, trolley, & train. Philadelphia International Airport is just minutes away.
We have a rich heritage. Chartered in 1890, the Borough is named for an estate which was known as “Sharon” and which at one time comprised almost 75 acres of the town, which covers .77 square miles. The estate was owned by Halliday Jackson, a Quaker, whose ancestors emigrated from Ireland in the early 1700’s. Jackson’s son, John, founded the Sharon Female Seminary on part of the grounds in the early 1800’s Academy Park High School is the current school to occupy the site. We are an “historic” town in that most of our homes are over fifty years old and many are 75 to 100 years and over in age. We have a mixture of large single homes, twins and row homes throughout the town and we are especially proud of our well-kept parks, playgrounds and recreational areas.
Our population of 5700+ includes approximately 1390 families. Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Tully Memorial Presbyterian Church, and the Sharon Hill Christian Center, maintain their congregations here. We are the home to many independent small businesses, two retail shopping centers, corporations and manufacturers in the Henderson Industrial Park on Calcon Hook Road
Our website contains the vital statistics of our government, the various commissions and organizations and the personnel who help make Sharon Hill a desirable place to live.
