Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Sparsely settled in the late 1600s, the area of Montgomery County known as the North Penn region began to be populated in the early 1700s by Welsh Baptists, Quakers, and German Mennonites. The North Penn Community not only highlights the region but also offers detailed accounts of the communities of Lansdale, North Wales, Hatfield, Colmar, Montgomeryville, West Point, and Kulpsville. Postcard images from 1905 through 1970 illustrate many historical sites such as farms, homes, hotels, stores, schools, churches, and other important parts of the community, chronicling the area from its original settlement of the 1700s to the bustling suburb of Philadelphia that it is today.
