I grew up in Oreland and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. It is a small town in a small public school district, which I love. It allows citizens to really get to know their neighbors, local business owners, and peers. It is close to Philadelphia, while still being a quite little suburb.

Sweet little town with amazing families, and a killer school system! We have two little girls and wouldn't want to raise them anywhere else...!!
It is an interesting town. Very close knit most people know each other and have lived here their whole lives.
