In the late 1800's, the Pennsylvania Railroad established several stations among them the Devon station. By the spring of 1896, numerous well-to-do families maintained homes along the Main Line. People in Devon depended on the horse and carriage for local transportation. To encourage the breeding of more and better horses, the heads of several prominent families met and created the Devon Horse Show Association. The group decided to hold a one-day Horse Show on July 2, 1896. They chose the Devon Race Track and Polo Grounds as the site for the show.

Devon is also known for superior shopping including automobile dealerships along Route 30.

Devon residents attend the highly rated public schools in the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District. The Easttown Administration building is located in Devon.
