ABOUT CEDAR PARK

Located north of Kingsessing, Cedar Park is bounded by 52nd Street to the east, Hazel Ave to the north, 46th Street to the west and the SEPTA rail tracks to the south. Originally outlying farmland, Cedar Park was built between 1850 and 1910 as a streetcar suburb. Its development as a suburb accelerated with the installation of horsecars in the 1850s and again with the arrival of electric trolley lines in 1892. Much of the historic Queen Anne-style architecture still exists.
