Bryn Mawr, PA is located in Haverford, Lower Merion, and Radnor  Townships. The name 'Bryn Mawr'  is taken from the Welsh, and means "big hill." 'Bryn Mawr' is taken from a Welsh  farm  near Dolgellau in North Wales. The estate was the farm of Rowland Ellis, who emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1686. Bryn Mawr is located near the center of the Main Line in Pennsylvania.

The town was known as 'Humphreysville' until it was renamed with the coming of the  Pennsylvania Railroad in 1869.

Bryn Mawr is the home to Bryn Mawr College, which is a women's liberal arts college founded in 1869.

The Harriton House is one of Bryn Mawr's historic attractions. The home was built in 1704 by Rowland Ellis.
