Blue Bell, PA (Montgomery County)
While not on the Main Line proper, Blue Bell still has all of the characteristic historical charm and upscale neighborhoods that define the region. Just north of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the community is located conveniently close to commuter thoroughfares into the North Side of Philadelphia. Additionally, many SEPTA commuter rail stations are located close by, such as Ambler and Pennlyn. Blue Bell is a picturesque example of the quintessential American successful small town. There are countless beautiful and stately large homes, and many major business parks. Several large companies maintain offices or even their global headquarters in the town, like Unisys, a global provider of software, technology and IT services. The town also boasts a healthy collection of small community shopping facilities and small businesses. Surrounded by parks and natural forests, Blue Bell allows residents to take a step back from the breakneck pace of nearby Philadelphia. Areas such as Prophecy Creek Park and Centre Square Park offer the opportunity to soak in nature or enjoy a community event. A community saturated with history, Blue Bell was named after the historic Blue Bell Inn that has stood since 1743. Also, the landmark Whitpain Public School building was inducted into the National Registry of Historic Places in 2006.
