Devon is a very small area, yet it has a few distinguishing features. Devon is home to both The Devon Horse Show, an event which has been going on since 1896. It is a time-honored tradition with a rich history. Another activity to pursue in Devon is a visit to the Jenkins Arboretum. Devon is also known for hosting the “auto mile” of car dealerships along Lancaster Avenue. Until recently, Devon could lay claim to Waterloo Gardens, a very large and well-respected plant nursery which moved a few miles away to the town of Exton. As far as housing is concerned, the most well-defined Devon neighborhood is the western section of the Shand Tract (the eastern portion of which falls into Wayne’s zip code). It is a neighborhood of community-spirited residents who plan neighborhood celebrations and gatherings. Houses are often Capes and ranches, but there are colonials as well. Prices here usually run between $525 and $750 and the average lot is about half an acre. This neighborhood is always in demand. Devon is also home to some very upscale homes and many custom builders find their services in demand in this area. Developments are not common, but individual high-end homes are.
