About this title

Synopsis:

From Indian trails to a slackwater navigation canal, three railroad lines, an airfield, and a concrete expressway, to a pair of expanding recreational trails, the history of Upper Providence Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania evolved along the confluence of the Schuylkill River and Perkiomen Creek. Shaped like a diamond puzzle piece until 1896, its history is linked to evolving movement and settlements beginning with Indian tribes, William Penn, and the American Revolution. Opening of the Pottstown Expressway, joined by expansion of the sewer plant, led to rapid development of township farmland. November 12, 2005 marked the Upper Providence Township Incorporation Bicentennial.

About the Author:

An eighteen year resident of Upper Providence Township, Leslie Lighton-Humphreys covered township Board of Supervisor meetings for a local weekly newspaper, served on the Board of the Schuylkill Canal Association, and has represented two township voting districts as a Republican Committeewoman. She and her husband Michael lived on Canal Street in Port Providence for sixteen years before relocating to a township home near the Royersford Borough line. Using books, articles, interviews, fieldtrips, an airplane ride, and other source research material, Leslie captured the flavor of her township's rich history. All proceeds from this book will support the Royersford Public Library.
