Overview

The Lenni Lenape called this place gueno-sheiki-hacki-ing, meaning "beautiful or peaceful valley." Incorporated in 1850, Conshohocken's colorful history had its beginnings as Native American territory prior to 1684, when William Penn purchased the land from the Tammany people. Soon Quakers purchased land, built homes, and opened mills. Conshohocken begins with tales and images of early history and continues with rare views that capture some of the majestic mansions built by the founding fathers, the tree-lined avenues with trolleys and horse-drawn carriages, the firehouses and train station and schools, and the many families and faces that have brought Conshohocken to life.

    Conshohocken, Pennsylvania (Postcard History Series)

    I bought this book and as I was reading it and looking at the great pictures, I kept thinking to myself--I remember when... Conshohocken, as a town, has gone through so many changes in the past two decades. It is great that Phil and Sharon captured, saved and shared these great views with the rest of us.

    I bought this book, and it is terrific! My wife and I have gone through it and we both have enjoyed it very much. It's the first book that I have seen that really dug into Conshohocken's history, with a pictorial assist.

    Conshohocken, Pennsylvania (Postcard History Series)

    This book has some great vintage postcard views with informative text about the town of Conshohocken in Montgomery County. I bought it for my grandmother, who was born and raised in Conshy, as she calls it. She was thrilled to see images of landmarks long since gone. It was a great trip down memory lane for her.
