Honey Brook is a borough located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population of the borough was 1,713 at the 2010 census. The borough is surrounded by Honey Brook Township, and both are referred to locally collectively as Honey Brook.HistoryHoney Brook Township was divided from Nantmeal Township in 1789. A schoolmaster and land developer named Stinson bought a plot of land along Horseshoe Pike in 1815. He had it surveyed and held a lottery to sell the lots for the town he called Waynesborough in honor of the Revolutionary War general, Mad Anthony Wayne. The residents changed the name to Honey Brook in 1884. Honey Brook is an incorrect English translation of the Welsh Nantmel, a village in Radnorshire, now part of Powys. The name 'Nantmel' actually means 'Mael's valley', Mael being a tenth-century prince. Honey Brook was incorporated as a borough in 1891.The year 1884 brought more changes to the village and township. The railroad from Philadelphia-Downingtown-Lancaster was completed and ran along the south side of Horseshoe Pike. The railroad caused a problem for the village: there was another Waynesburg in western Pennsylvania. The freight was being routed to the wrong stations. Hence, the name was changed from Waynesburg to Honey Brook.To arrange what you want to do in Honey Brook, use our United States trip itinerary planning website.
