Brief History Around Telford Homes for Sale
Telford and its surrounding areas were originally inhabited by the Lenape Indians but in 1719, the area began to be settled by Mennonites from southwestern Germany, a region called the Palatinate of the Rhine. The Telford Homes for Sale area remained primarily farmlands and woodlands throughout the 1700s and 1800s. In the mid 1800s, the North Pennsylvania Railroad Company established a line from Philadelphia to Allentown, which allowed farmers to take their products to the city more easily. In 1857, the town known as County Line changed its name to Telford after the railroad company named their new station located there “Telford” after their civil engineer Thomas Telford.
The Borough of Telford was eventually incorporated in 1886 in Bucks County. A decade later, the Borough of West Telford was incorporated in Montgomery County. There was some borough boundary line overlap between the two counties and in 1936, due to a state law which prohibited the boundaries of a borough from extending into another county, the two boroughs merged to form a single Borough of Telford.
