The personal injury lawyers in Tredyffrin Township, PA, sponsor this article to offer some detailed information about the area.

The Tredyffrin Township is located in eastern Chester County, Pennsylvania. The township spans 19.85 square miles and is within area code 610. Tredyffrin is bounded by Delaware and Montgomery counties and is the most populous township in Chester County.

History

On 13 March 1684, William Penn decided to set aside a portion of Pennsylvania for the Welsh to settle in and deemed it the "Welsh Tract." The area consisted of several modern-day townships, including Tredyffrin.

Welsh Tract was originally meant to be a self-ruling municipality, but when the county was created in 1685, the area was divided between Chester County and Philadelphia. The Welsh subsequently submitted to the authority of Chester County.

In 1707, Tredyffrin was incorporated as a township. The township's name comes from the Welsh tre(f), which means "town," joined with Dyffryn, which means "wide, cultivated valley." Tredyffrin quickly developed into a thriving township, and by 1710, the first mill in Tredyffrin was started by Thomas Jerman.

By 1728, one of the first roads was created and deemed Swedesford Road.

As the township continued to develop, the population grew, and by 1722, the township consisted of 30 resident landowners and 83 by 1774. With a surge in religious landowners, churches sprung up to meet the demand.

Since the Tredyffrin township includes part of Valley Forge National Historical Park, many Revolutionary War-related sites are in the township. Some of the most notable are the parks and houses where various generals were quartered. You can find a number of these historical landmarks within the township today.

In the 19th century, development in the township surged once again by constructing the "Main Line" railroad service.

In 1932, the Tredyffrin-Easttown school district planned to segregate after building a new school. However, African-Americans in the township boycotted the school system for two years in protest, commonly known as the "School Fight."

By 1934, a negotiated settlement was reached, and the schools remained integrated. The integration is said to have helped kill school segregation in Pennsylvania.

Historic Sites

The Tredyffrin Township is packed with history and historic sites. If you ever find yourself in the charming township of Pennsylvania, there a few landmarks you must check out including,

Wharton Esherick Studio

  • Now housing the Wharton Esherick Museum, the studio was built between 1926 and 1966 and was originally the studio of craftsman-artist Wharton Esherick. The Wharton Esherick Museum was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1971 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. By 1993, the studio was declared a National Historic Landmark.

Valley Forge National Historical Park

  • The 3,500-acre park was the site of the third winter encampment of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. The National Park Service preserves the site, and the park, originally known as Valley Forge State Park, became a national historical park in 1976.

Greenwood Farm

  • The historic home and farm include a stone farmhouse, stone bank barn, stone carriage house, tenant house, stone smokehouse, tennis court, and swimming pool. The house was originally a three-bay, double-pile stone structure and predates to 1798. The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
