Aldan PA, established in 1893, is a town of some 4300 people, with an area of 0.6 sq. miles. It is located 6 miles west of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Borough known as the “Community of Homes’ is 97 % residential,
and 3% businesses. Aldan has the Trolley Stop Museum, Veterans Park and Memorial. Park. There is also the Volunteer Park which is a tribute to the commitment and dedication of our citizenry to volunteering their time and energy to Borough activities, projects and organizations,. There is the Colonial Playhouse Theatre, and various parks and fields for baseball, soccer and basketball. Commuting is easy as Aldan is served by a SEPTA trolley line running through town with connections to Philadelphia. Our northern border is the SEPTA commuter train line ( again with service to Philadelphia). We are 0.5 miles from Baltimore Pike and the “Golden Mile” of shopping, and restaurants.
Aldan is truly “small town” America. There are many community groups, including the Aldan Boosters Civic Association, Boys Club, Girls Club, Women’s Club, Town Watch, Swim Club, and July 4th Committee .
Our residents have “pride of community” and have made and continue to make Aldan a great place to live.
I invite you to tour our site and discover more about Aldan and its services, history, programs and people.
