Home » Guides » Pennsylvania » Route 796

PA 796 travels seven miles from PA 896 (Newark Road) and New London Township to PA 41 (Gap Newport Pike) at Londonberry Township wholly within Chester County. The highway was previously entirely rural, but suburban development encroaches the state route in Penn Township.

PA 796 originally traveled southward to the state of Delaware, where it continued as a multi-state route.
