Synposis of Flourtown

Flourtown is a census-designated place within the Springfield Township of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It is situated adjacent to the neighborhoods of Chestnut Hill, Erdenheim, Oreland and Whitemarsh. The history of the CDP dates back to 1743, when a small community was founded in the area. It was named after a flouring mill that was located near the original townsite. Today, Flourtown consists of mostly old homes that were built during Colonial times. The only commercial activity going on in the CDP is done by a few antique shops. As of the 2010 census, Flourtown has a population of 4,538 people and a total area of 1.4 square miles.

Black Horse Inn is a historic tavern and inn in Flourtown. Also referred to as Sampson & the Lion, it was originally built in 1744. In 1833, 1880 and 1908, more additions were added to the Federal style, stuccoed stone structure building. On July 5, 2005, the historic inn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

Springfield Township High School

Springfield Township High School was first established in 1924 as a high school for juniors and seniors in the area. Located at Hillcrest Pond, which was the former site of White City Amusement Park, the school had to be expanded and relocated as the township grew and the demand for a bigger high school increased. In 1954, the construction for the current high school on Paper Mill Road was completed.

Today, the public school serves 9th through 12th grade. As the only high school in the Springfield Township School District, it has a population of 712 students and a student-to-teacher ratio of 13 to 1.
