Ithan is a small neighborhood in Villanova, Pennsylvania. Formerly known as Radnorville, it can be found just southeast of the community of Wayne, at the intersection of Conestoga Road, Newtown Road and South Radmore Chester Road. Before the 1980s, the village was rural and fairly undeveloped. However, as the population in the Delaware Valley grew, Ithan became one of the most desirable suburbs of Philadelphia because of its close proximity to the Main Line.
Academy of Notre Dame de Namur is a private educational institution in Ithan. Established in 1856, the school was first opened by Sister Superior Louise as "The Academy." Located in several locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area for years, it moved to its current site on Sproul Road in the 1940s.
In 1943, the school had entered into an agreement to purchase the 50-acre estate Launfal of the late utilities magnate, Clarence Geist. However, it wasn't until 2006 that the school officially purchased the mansion and its surrounding property. Academy of Notre Dame de Namur became an independent institution affiliated with the Sisters of Notre Dame. Offering classes to girls in middle and high school, it is within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia and has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Radnor Valley Country Club was once the estate of Franklin McFadden, an honorary consul for Japan. Built in 1907, the mansion and 40 acres of its surrounding land were acquired in 1951 by Louis Harrison, a founding member of Radnor Valley. Notable Philadelphia course architect Dick Wilson was commissioned to design the golf course. However, the initial focus of having the country club be golf-only soon changed as more people were attracted to the club. A swimming pool was added that same year, and a racquet followed later.
Today, Radmor Valley Country Club is one of the best choices for golf, tennis, swimming, fitness, and special events in the Chester County and Main Line area. Catering to today's active families, the child-friendly club offer amenities like indoor and outdoor racquets facilities, indoor and outdoor dining, one of the finest golf course of the Main Line, a practice facility, a fitness center, a picturesque 1923 mansion, a clubhouse, and more. Members that you could purchase include Family Golf, Single Golf with Sports Family, Single Golf, Young Executive Golf, Sports, Jr. Golf, Tennis & Swim, and House.
