THREE COUNTIES…THREE STORIES

Berks County

On March 11, 1752, Berks County was formed from parts of Chester, Lancaster, and Philadelphia counties. It was named after Berkshire, England, where William Penn’s family home lay. Agriculture was the principle reason behind the county’s settlement and the county still ranks among the top 100 counties nationwide for the number of farms and the market value of agricultural products produced. Berks County contains two state parks (Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center and French Creek State Park) and two Pennsylvania Historic Sites (Conrad Weiser Homestead and Daniel Boone Homestead).

Chester County

Chester County is full of history and played a significant part in the founding of the nation, including the Battle of Brandywine, the Paoli Massacre and the Valley Forge encampment. Agricultural and horticultural activities have flourished in Chester County and provide a major source of income. The first steel to be manufactured in America was produced at Coventry Forge, North Coventry Township. In addition to the many cultural and recreational facilities shared with the Philadelphia metropolitan area, the county has its own attractions, including several Revolutionary War Sites.

Montgomery County

Montgomery County was created in 1784 and nearly all of the boroughs were born out of the extension of the railroads. Kilns were built to make lime, an industry still operating to this day. Along the Schuylkill River, heavy manufacturing and steel mills were developed. The county was the scene for the first canal construction, but it was never completed. The county was also the scene of the first turnpike construction in Pennsylvania. Also, the county used macadamizing for the first time in America. Today, the county consists of residential, industrial, commercial, and agricultural areas.
