Discover Yorklyn: Mill Town, Hometown, Our Town

Nestled along the state’s northern border, hugging the Red Clay Creek, is the small, unassuming (and unincorporated) community dubbed Yorklyn by the railroad about 1872. Home to Auburn Heights Preserve, the Marshall Steam Museum, the Center for the Creative Arts and several small businesses, the village has witnessed growth, decline and now a revitalization that is bringing back the creative spirit and communal character that has defined it throughout its 150-year history.
