Jenkintown is a borough in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, about 10 miles (16 km) north of downtown Philadelphia. "Jenkintown" is also used to describe a number of neighborhoods surrounding the borough, which also are known by names such as Rydal, Jenkintown Manor and Noble. While the post office will deliver "Jenkintown"-addressed mail to these areas, they are not part of the political entity of Jenkintown; they are within Abington Township.The Jenkintown-Wyncote train station is one of SEPTA's major stops; the Warminster Line, West Trenton Line, Airport Line, and Lansdale/Doylestown Line regional rail services all stop there.HistoryThe community was named for William Jenkins, a pioneer settler. The Borough of Jenkintown is located just outside of Philadelphia along the Route 611 corridor between Abington and Cheltenham Townships. The Borough was settled in about 1697 and incorporated on December 8, 1874 when approximately 248acre was taken from Abington Township. Today, the Borough is approximately 0.58 square miles and is home to 4,500 residents.
