Many of the homes in the tree-lined community date to the late 1800s and the lovely grounds of the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College are nearby. SEPTA’s Regional Rail Media/Elwyn train line serves the borough with a stop at the Morton-Rutledge Station. Rutledge is part of the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
