Paoli is in Chester County near Philadelphia. It is situated in portions of two townships: Tredyffrin and Willistown. The town of Paoli grew around an inn kept in 1769 by Joshua Evans, whose father bought 500 acres from William Penn in 1719 near the current site of the Paoli Post Office. Evans named his inn after General Pasquale Paoli, a Corsican, after Paoli had received the 45th and final toast at a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration. The inn’s location on the Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpike, about 20 miles (one day’s drive for a horse-drawn wagon) from Philadelphia, contributed to its success.
The Tredyffrin/Easttown School District serves the portions of Paoli in Tredyffrin Township. The section of Paoli in Willistown Township is served by Great Valley School District.
