Getting to Know West Conshohocken, PA

The car accident attorneys in West Conshohocken, PA, at Justice Guardians invite you to get to know the history of the borough.

History

The community was incorporated on October 6, 1874, as a borough. It took land almost equally from the Lower and Upper Merion Townships.
