Secane is named after a 17th-century Algonquin leader.[3] In July 1683, William Penn purchased the lands between Chester Creek and the Schuylkill River from the Unami chiefs Secane and Icquoquehan.[4][5]

Secane was the home of the Tully-Secane Country Club. However, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia converted the golf course into Our Lady of Fatima Church.[6]


Secane is divided between the municipalities of Ridley Township, and Upper Darby Township, and is often confused with Clifton Heights, since the two communities share the same the ZIP code.

The Muckinipattis Creek initiates in Secane and runs south through the community until it meets with Darby Creek in Tinicum Township.[7]


Secane has a population of almost 1000 and was farmland before it was developed into a residential area in the 20th century.


Three main roads run through the town, Providence Road, South Avenue and Franklin Avenue, which leads to Kedron Avenue (Route 420).
