Located in Chester County, roughly 39 miles from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Coatesville is a densely populated area, with 13,100 residents at the time of the 2010 Census.
An area that was impacted significantly by the first turnpike in the country, Coatesville has continued to be easily accessible as the country has grown. Today it can be reached on SEPTA’s Paoli/Thorndale Line, in Regional Rail Zone 4. There is connecting service to Philadelphia on Krapf Transit Route A.
Coatesville Area School District serves the students in the area.
In its earliest days, the Chester County town known as Coatesville, Pennsylvania, began as an Indian village and expanded into a market and trading center for the fur trapping industry.
In 1787 Moses Coates, a wealthy agricultural landowner, and the very first postmaster of the area bought the land that is now closest to the center of present-day Coatesville.
In 1794, not long after the American Revolution, The Philadelphia-Lancaster Turnpike was completed and was hailed the nation’s first turnpike. As a result, the volume of traffic in the area increased significantly, which cued Moses Coates’s son-in-law, Jess Kersey, to devise a plan for the development of land on both sides of the Brandywine River.
Along with Isaac Pennock, Jesse Kersey purchased 110.5 acres from Moses Coates and created an area of commerce in Coatesville.

Tammy Hill Reviews The Law Offices of Craig Altman
Coatesville Personal Injury Attorney
Getting hurt in a car accident was certainly unplanned and such an inconvenience for my family and I because it left us without a source of income and a damaged car to pay for when it was not even my fault. Craig earned me money for my car, injury, and more!
