Situated on two square miles approximately fifty miles north of Philadelphia, Quakertown is a vibrant community with a history of hard work and determination. The 2010 Census reports that the population of the area at that time was 8,979.
Quakertown is served by SEPTA, and accessible on the Allentown Main Line. The Lehigh Valley, Trenton, and Philadelphia International airports all offer public flights.
The Quakertown Community School District serves the Quakertown Area.
Formerly referred to as “The Great Swamp,” Quakertown was a small agricultural village comprised of Welsh and German farmers during the early 1800s, and only consisted of 12 dwellings in 1820.
The town is located between the two cities of Philadelphia and Allentown and its only tavern made it a crossover village for stages and commercial traffic.
In 1855, the construction of the North Pennsylvania Railroad stimulated significant growth in the area. Between the burst in productivity from the railroad, along with the expansion of commerce across the nation, Quakertown became a prosperous place of business, busy in the production and exchange of boots, cigars, tools, harnesses, and wheel spokes.
