All About Glenside, PA

The medical malpractice lawyers in Glenside, PA, at Justice Guardians invite you to learn more about the neighborhood's history and historical landmarks.


Glenside is a census-designated place, or CDP, located within both Cheltenham Township and Abington Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The 832-acre community neighbors North Hills, Wyncote, Jenkintown, Noble, and Ardsley. Edge Hill Road forms the northern border, while Tookany Creek flows along the southern edge. Jenkintown Road travels along the eastern boundary, and Limekiln Pike created the western. 

Historic Events

In 1904 the community began what would later become the longest-running and largest Fourth of July parades. The Greater Glenside Patriotic Association now sponsors it. This traditional parade includes volunteer fire companies from the greater area. Many bands and other musical performers enjoy showing off their talents during the event. Church groups and community organizations, along with local and state elected officials, such as Former-Governor Ed Rendell, frequently participate in the festival. The Schuylkill County Motorcycle Drill Team puts on a unique and highly anticipated show each year.

Historical Landmarks

The privately-owned Keswick Theatre, located on Keswick Avenue, was built in 1928. Horace Trumbauer designed the structure in a Tudor Revival Style. The look of the theatre is the same today as it was when it was first built. Initially, the building held 1,366 viewers. Its first performance was for the Kiwanis Club on Christmas Day in 1928. However, it opened to the public later that same month with the film Glorious Betsy. The theatre reminded in operation until 1980 but was purchased by new owners and reopened. 

Other historical landmarks include:

  • the Keswick Village
  • Glenside Free Library
  • Glenside Pool
  • Grey Towers Castle


The community is home to Arcadia University, which spans across 76-acres. The private university was founded in 1853 but went by the name Beaver Female Seminary. The name was changed in 2001 to boost its enrollment and to prevent it from being blocked by many web browsers. The historical landmark, Grey Towers Castle, is located on the school's campus. The school offers programs such as:

  • accounting 
  • agribusiness
  • graphic design
  • forensic investigations
  • and more
