About Blandon and Maidencreek Township
Maidencreek Township in Berks County consists of the Village of Blandon, its largest town, as well as Evansville, Maidencreek and Molltown. The township was named for the creek that runs through it and intersects with the Schuylkill River. It was first settled by Quakers in 1732, who lived among the Lenni Lenape Indians, and later by Germans, Scots, Welsh and Irish settlers.
In the late 1700s, blacksmith Robert Bland acquired a large tract of land and founded Bland Town, now Blandon. The town would experience a growth spurt when the East Penn Railroad passed through in 1859, and a roller mill, grist mill, cider mill, distillery and motel emerged in this farming community by the early 1900s.
Fleetwood Area School District
Blandon is served by the Fleetwood Area School District, which operates three elementary schools (including Andrew Maier Elementary in Blandon), a middle school, and a high school to serve the children of Fleetwood Borough, Maidencreek Township and Richmond Township. The district offers a wide variety of academic courses, music, the arts, sports programs and extracurricular activities.
