Souderton and Telford - two distinct towns creating one incredible community.
Souderton-Telford grew from the fertile farmland of the Indian Valley. Originally inhabited by the Lenape Indians, the land was purchased by William Penn in 1684. For much of its history, these communities remained agriculture in nature. Nearly 200 years later, a railroad came to town bringing textile mills and industrial factories. With the end of World War II, the clothing industry experienced a decline, yet a number of opportunities emerged as large farm families erected factories to process their foods.
Today, these communities continue to grow. Much of their employment base and community traits remain intact, and new and existing businesses are thriving in the Boroughs. While both maintain their own unique identity, together, they form one of the most impressive, caring, and committed communities in our region.
