History

Malvern is the site of the Paoli Massacre during the American Revolutionary War.

Named after the Malvern Hills, close to the Welsh border in England, Malvern was originally settled by Welsh settlers in the 17th century. William Penn sold them the land for 10 cents an acre, along with the rest of the land on the Welsh tract.[2] Malvern was incorporated as a borough in 1889, from portions of Willistown Township. On April 22, 2008, the borough converted to a Home Rule form of governance.[3]
