Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ithan Creek is a 4.2-mile-long (6.8 km) tributary of Darby Creek in Radnor Township and Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Darby Creek is a tributary of the Delaware River. The village of Ithan along the creek was the first European settlement in modern-day Radnor Township in the seventeenth century. The Muckinipattis then proceeds past the Primos-Secane swim club in Upper Darby Township. Further downstream it flows under the former A&P parking lot in Secane before forming the border of Darby and Ridley townships. It empties into Darby Creek between the shores of Montgomery Park in the borough of Folcroft and the historic Morton House in Norwood. The name "Muckinipates" is a Lenni-Lenape word meaning "deep running water." The Otter and Turtle tribes within the Leni Lenape nation hunted, lived along the creek and had a small village on what today is Montgomery Park in Folcroftshow more
