BeschreibungConshohocken, a square-mile borough just outside Philadelphia, was incorporated in 1850 with just seven hundred twenty-seven residents. A century later, the population peaked at eleven thousand. This volume explores the changes in the community during more than one hundred fifty years of growth. Highlights include St. Matthew's High School, the borough's centennial and sesquicentennial celebrations, and Alan Wood Steel, one of the area's largest employers. Although the face of the community has changed, Conshohocken's residents have always preserved the sense of family that endures today.
