In the spring of 1866, David Evans entered into possession of 24 acres of land, lying on both sides of the Pennsylvania RR, near what was then the junction of the West Chester Branch RR, called West Chester Intersection and carried on the coal, lumber and feed business on the north side of the Pennsylvania RR at the yard formerly occupied by Benjamin J. Roberts.

In 1871, he purchased of Isaac Ruth 140 acres on the south side of King Road.

The Railroad, in straightening its tracks, built a new station about 100 yards north of the old West Chester Intersection Station, and at the suggestion of the firm and others interested the new station was called Malvern. It was first used for passengers on the 21st of 2mo, 1873, when the travel was changed to the new line.
