Lying just to the north of Exeter’s city centre, Pennsylvania originated with the building of four houses at Pennsylvania Terrace (now Pennsylvania Park) in the early 1800s by Joseph Sparkes, a partner in the General Bank. Mr Sparkes was a member of the Society of Friends, and adopted the name Pennsylvania for his new terrace from the province established by William Penn in the USA. By the middle of the 19th Century the name had extended to cover the whole district. Today Pennsylvania is known as the home of Exeter University, which has been short-listed for the Sunday Times’ University of the Year Award more times than any other university. However the area is not only popular with academia, its proximity to Exeter’s bustling city centre also make it popular with city professionals who want an easy commute whilst being close to walks and open countryside.
