This is the official website of District Township, Berks County,
Early Beginnings . . .
Settlers pushed their way up the
Schuylkill Valley and its
principal tributaries into the
historic Oley Hills. As
settlement began above the Oley
Hills, the new area was called
the district between Oley and
Colebrookdale. The settlements
extended more and more, until the
county commissioners (in order to
ease the assessment of property)
divided the area into two sections -- East
District and West District.
Separate assessment lists of these
two districts were kept for many
1759 the Eastern
District was established as
District Township, and in 1781 the
Western District was named
Today District Township's
population is approximately 1500,
and still remains true to the
natural surrounding beauty of
abundant woodlands, crisp streams,
and historic farmlands.
