A Brief History of Malvern

Malvern Borough – a municipality of approximately 3,000 residents in southeastern Pennsylvania – received its name from a common Welsh topographical feature; has links to American history, pop music, and motorsports; and contains many excellent tracts of commercial real estate.

The town holds a position of prominence among its Chester County, PA, geographical neighbors for more than just its location 25 miles west of Philadelphia: It sits on a hill overlooking the surrounding suburban townships, a feature that led to its name as the word Malvern (or, as precisely translated, ‘Malverne”) comes from the Welsh “moel bryn,” which means “bare topped hill.” Known for a long period as West Chester Intersection, the town’s name was changed to Malvern in 1873 when the Pennsylvania Railroad built a line through the village.

Being so close to the cradle of our nation’s independence, it’s no surprise that the town played a role in the War of Independence. The borough was the site of the so-called Massacre of Paoli, one of the few blemishes on the stellar military record of Brigadier General Anthony “Mad Anthony” Wayne. While there were few actual casualties at the battle, named for the nearby community of Paoli, it was portrayed as a bloodbath in British news reports of the time, making it an early example of wartime propaganda.

Chronologically between the significant battles of Brandywine and Germantown, the Massacre of Paoli took place on September 20, 1777. Wayne’s troops, encamped in Malvern and tasked with protecting General George Washington and his executive staff staying in Philadelphia, were ambushed by British troops, suffering a limited number of casualties and surrendering a handful of prisoners.

Despite claims that Wayne’s entire complement was either killed in battle or tortured and killed while in British custody, such butchery never was proven, although London newspapers covering the war repeatedly insisted otherwise. Facing a court martial for misconduct just months later, it was determined that Wayne had acted with honor and was fully exonerated. In addition to the Paoli Battlefield Site and Parade Grounds, the Wharton Esherick Studio is another historic landmark in the town.
