Berwyn (after the Berwyn mountain range in north-east Wales) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Chester County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 3,631 at the 2010 census. Prior to 2010 it was part of the Devon-Berwyn CDP. The area is part of Philadelphia's Main Line suburbs. At times, the village has been called Cocheltown, Reeseville, Glassley and Gaysville. The town received its present name in 1877 during the celebration of its centennial when one of the Welsh settlers proposed to name the village after the Berwyn Hills overlooking the Valley of the Dee River in Meionetshire, Wales. Berwyn is located within Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships.
Berwyn is home of the Footlighters' Theater, a non-profit theater that has provided entertainment for over 80 years. Footlighters' Theater is the oldest community theater on the Philadelphia Main Line.
TE Connectivity has its operational headquarters in Berwyn.
