A Town In History: Elverson

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Elverson’s earliest settlers arrived in the late 18th century when the area was known as Springfield, which could be why the largest neighborhood is named “Summerfield”, a tribute to history. The town remained very rural until the introduction of a new railroad nearby causing the population to spike. The town is the picture perfect replication of an American town, with local businesses and small town churches. The town has become a a large historical ground housing French Creek and Hopewell Furnace. The town has seemed to stand still in the eyes of time.

While walking the streets, it was clear to see the history everywhere. The trees seemed to arch to protect it’s town and housed varying wildlife in Livingood Park. The Elverson famous delli stands stall, proudly serving locals all day. Personally the houses are the best part. On both sides of the street are brick and old style homes housing the elders of the historic town. The untouched homes only give the town more authenticity, and add to the history.
