History

According to a publication from 1886, the town was named after a cluster of walnut trees growing within its borders.

One of the town's prominent families who settled in its early years was the Rothermel's. This large and influential family descended from John Rothermel, who was born in Wachbach, Holland, in 1688.

Rothermel and his wife, Sybilla Zimmerman, had six children before they left Rotterdam in 1730 on a ship heading to America. Unfortunately, John died during the trip, but his family arrived in August of 1730. One daughter, Anna Maria, settled with her husband, Peter Fetherolf, in Macungie. The sons settled in Berks and included:
