Aston is among the commonwealth's first townships, having been settled in the late 17th century and named Northley. Eventually renamed for Aston in Oxfordshire, England, the Delaware County suburb was established with the boundaries we know today in 1945. Zillow reports the median listing price in the suburb around $228,000, with a forecast for rising rates over the next two years. These properties are priced to sell a bit south of that figure.
