Launch of new Discover Haverford website!
It’s finally ready and live! 

We’ve been working on the DiscoverHaverford.org  website for months and here it is! 

The website serves a number of purposes: acting as a clearinghouse of information for Haverford Township residents, promoting the Township as a destination for shopping and dining, and offering information to potential new businesses and residents.

The website includes:

  • History & culture of Haverford Township
  • Haverford Township Restaurant Guide
  • Calendar of public meetings & community events
  • List of community groups with links
  • Haverford in the News
  • Photo galleries
  • Business Recruitment Materials

We will be working on other elements in the next few months, including a searchable business directory, a gift-buying guide, and a list of volunteer opportunities.  

The HPED website will continue to focus on our projects and events, and have newsletter and membership sign up links.
