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

Perkiomenville, PA

The Perkiomen Valley was first inhabited by the Lenni-Lenape Tribe and was declared part of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on March 4, 1681 by King Charles II of England.


The Perkiomen Valley was once referred to as the “Goschenhoppen”, named after the Northern American people who referred to themselves as Lenape. 

In 1720, the first copper mine in Pennsylvania was located near Schwenksville.


The Perkiomen Valley provided the colonists and the Native Americans a rich place to grow crops and livestock, which would later feed the troops during the Revolutionary War.


George Washington's troops rested in the Perkiomen Valley in a place called Valley Forge on their way to defeat the British and gain their autonomy over the thirteen colonies.


One of the famous men that lived in the Perkiomen Valley was John James Audubon, a French-American ornithologist noted for his paintings and drawings of birds.

In 1879 Limerick Township was created and in 1886 the Skippack and Perkiomen Townships split into Skippack Township and Perkiomen Township.


The Perkiomen Township later split into two different townships called Lower Perkiomen Township and Upper Perkiomen Township.


Collegeville and Trappe are two towns in Montgomery County that were purchased by Ursinus College in 1869 and were later included in Upper Providence Township in 1896.


In 1903, the Schwenksville Borough was incorporated into the Perkiomen Township.
