610 Area Code: History & Time Zone

The 610 area code was one of the original area codes established in 1947. It served eastern Pennsylvania, including the city of Philadelphia. At first, it only covered the southeastern corner of the state, but it gradually grew to cover more and more of the area. The 610 area code was originally assigned to the area code split in 1994, which created the 215 area code. However, the 610 area code was reassigned to the new 610 area code in 1997, when the 215 area code was split again.

The 610 area code is now part of the Delaware Valley numbering plan area, which also includes the 215, 267, and 445 area codes. The 610 area code is unique in that it is the only area code in the Delaware Valley numbering plan area that is not a overlay area code.

The 610 area code is also unique in that it is the only area code in the United States that is divided into two time zones. The western half of the 610 area code is in the Central Time Zone, while the eastern half is in the Eastern Time Zone.
