Why Choose Schwenksville?
Situated along the western shore of Perkiomen Creek in Montgomery County, the Borough of Schwenksville is 30 miles east of Reading via US-422, and about 35 miles from both Allentown (to the north) and Philadelphia (to the southeast) via the PA Turnpike.
Schwenksville was founded in 1684, when the Lenni-Lenape Indians ceded the land of the Perkiomen Valley to William Penn. Incorporated in 1903, the Borough was named for George Schwenk, whose son, Jacob, served in George Washington’s army. It was a great summer resort community during its early years.
Today, the Schwenksville area is a great blend of country and city, with abundant open space, bubbling creeks, acres of rolling hills and scenic wooded groves, gentleman’s farmhouses, Victorian-era homes, and upscale neighborhoods.
The majority of Schwenksville Borough is served by the Perkiomen Valley School District, which operates four elementary schools, two middle schools and a high school. Some Schwenksville addresses are served by the award-winning Spring-Ford Area School District.
