Neighborhood History

Prior to 2010, when Lionville was named a census-designated place, the area was known as Lionville-Marchwood. However, the name 'Marchwood' only referred to a housing development that began in the early 1960s located couth of the 100-113 highway intersection.

Before the name Lionville-Marchwood, the original name of the village was Welsh Pool. To honor the local Red Lion Inn, the name was changed to Lionville since a borough of Red Lion, Pennsylvania, already existed.

The home was used as a hospital by the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.
