About West Reading, PA
The land west of the Schuylkill River which would eventually become West Reading was granted to three Welshmen in 1733, and one of its first buildings, a brick home, was erected in 1810. The town was not incorporated as a Borough until 1907, but by 1950 it had become the largest of Berks County’s 30 boroughs.
Today, West Reading is home to the largest employer in Berks County, the world-class Reading Hospital and Medical Center, and the largest novelty candy maker in the world, Palmer Candies.
Living in West Reading means you’ll be surrounded by the Schuylkill River and beautiful green countryside, a walkable entertainment corridor along Penn Avenue, and the vast history and culture of Berks County.
Enjoy annual events in the Borough, such as Arts on the Avenue in June and Fall on the Avenue in September; discover fresh, locally grown products, featuring organic produce, beef and poultry, at the popular West Reading Farmer’s Market; or visit The Barley Mow to sample 750 varieties of craft beer from more than 100 American craft breweries.
If you’re a history buff, there are dozens of interesting destinations nearby, including the 1730 Daniel Boone Homestead in nearby Birdsboro; Reading’s world famous landmark, the Pagoda, and the Gruber Wagon Works, a National Historic Landmark; and the Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in Elverson, the finest example of an iron plantation in America.
The Pennsylvania Dutch history and culture of Berks County is on display every year at the Kutztown Folk Festival, one of America’s most celebrated festivals, and the oldest continuing folklife event in the nation. Visitors enjoy authentic Pennsylvania Dutch quilts, folklore programs, continuous entertainment, music, a wide array of children’s activities, and the best Pennsylvania Dutch food around.
A Great School District
Another factor that makes West Reading so desirable is its location within the Wyomissing Area School District, which operates two elementary schools and a junior/senior high school.
Wyomissing Area High School has been ranked within Newsweek’s top 1,200 public high schools in the United States annually since 2006. With a slogan of “Inspiring Excellence, One Spartan at a Time,” the school also consistently ranks among the Washington Post’s most challenging public schools in Pennsylvania.
