Langhorne Manor Borough was established in 1890. Just prior to that a group of prominent Langhorne and Philadelphia professionals, created the Langhorne Improvement Company and founded the Langhorne Spring Water Company. Development occurred rapidly thereafter, primarily fine, distinctive residences for which the borough is still regarded today. The early property titles carried unusual (for the time) restrictions (as binding then as zoning laws are today). The town was thoughtfully laid out with wide streets and relatively large lots for a borough. Many residents were Philadelphia businessmen. Many homes along Park, Hill, and Station Avenues range from 3,000 to more than 5,000 sq. ft. of living space. The median lot size for borough residences is 1/2 acre, unusually large for a small municipality.
Philadelphia Biblical University (formerly the Philadelphia Bible College) makes Langhorne Manor its home, serenely complementing the traces of the later Victorian Era residences found throughout the town.
