When It Comes To Moving Collegeville
 We Don't Horse Around!

Collegeville, PA

The area which is present day Collegeville was part of the original William Penn purchase of “All the land lying on the Pahkehoma” in 1684.


When the trains first arrived in the area in 1868, there was a debate about naming of the station (Perkiomen Bridge vs Freeland).


The rail company avoided any troubles by naming it “Collegeville”, although the station was actually closer to the Pennsylvania Female College than either Freeland School or Perkiomen Bridge.


Ursinus College was founded a year later in 1869.


Thus the name “Collegeville” precedes the establishment of Ursinus College and it is actually named after the other 4 year liberal arts college (Pennsylvania Female College) which closed in 1880.

Current day Collegeville is a great place to live, play and work.


It is a close-knit community, that takes pride in their neighborhoods, streets, and parks.
