Overview
The Upper Perkiomen Valley covers a large portion of the northern corner of Montgomery County and smaller portions of Berks, Lehigh, and Bucks Counties. Beginning in the late 1600s, European settlers began to populate the area. By the late 1800s, rural trades along with agricultural and milling activities were surpassed by new industries that included ice harvesting, cigar making, stone quarrying, and textile manufacturing. Through postcards and photographs, The Upper Perkiomen Valley illustrates the culture as it existed in this area a century ago. Previously unseen images create an understanding of the past, a connection with the community, and pride in this beautiful region.
