 ANNOUNCEMENT

Purchase of Additional Park Land

The new 17-acre land tract is situated along Landis Store Road and was purchased for $145,000 from the Fischer family on July 31, 2012. The funds came in part from a $67,500 grant obtained from DCNR, with the remaining funds coming from the Township and a gift from the Fischer family. The new tract will be named "The Margareta Fischer Park." 

District Township has increased the park's open space to nearly 75 continuous acres, which will remain a natural area for hiking, bird-watching, environmental research, and other outdoor activities for Township residents.

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 years. In 1759 the Eastern District was established as District Township, and in 1781 the Western District was named Earl Township. 

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.
