With these neighbors, homes for rent in Claymont attract many commuters, as well as those who simply seek a relaxing lifestyle within reach of a little urban excitement. Though it's a small community, Claymont has undergone substantial development that has made it one of the more popular areas in Philadelphia.

Since 1993, the Claymont Renaissance Development Corporation has been planning and executing a revitalization project aimed at refurbishing the town's commercial districts and improving its neighborhoods. This plan keeps a keen eye toward preserving the area's rich history and culture as well as the small-town feel strengthened by homes and rentals throughout the community. The first revitalization efforts focused on renovating historical sites including the Claymont Stone School, which was the first racially integrated public school in Delaware; the Darley House; and the Robinson House, which is thought to be the only remaining structure from the area's original Naaman's Creek settlement.
Houses for rent in Claymont are currently available to introduce newcomers to a town on the brink of a major community and economic development.
