Secane is named for a local Indian chief who sold land to Benjamin Franklin in exchange for supplies. The Secane area was primarily farmland until the 20th century, when it was transformed into a residential paradise. The town is still quite small, with a population of barely over a thousand people, which makes it a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia. But SEPTA trains run through town, so you can still make it to Philly in minutes.
