Collegeville is a borough in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and a suburb of Philadelphia on the Perkiomen Creek. Collegeville and the surrounding area are rapidly growing. The borough of Collegeville is home to Ursinus College, as well as many local businesses. The area which is present day Collegeville was part of the original William Penn purchase of "All the land lying on the Pahkehoma" in 1684. In 1799, Perkiomen Bridge was constructed using funds raised from a special lottery approved by the Pennsylvania Legislature. When the trains first arrived in the area in 1868, there was a debate about naming of the station (Perkiomen Bridge vs Freeland). The local citizens had acquired notoriety when they had burned down the toll booth on the Perkiomen Bridge and thrown the gate into the river. The rail company avoided any troubles by naming it "Collegeville" since the station was actually closer to the Pennsylvania Female College than either Freeland School or Perkiomen Bridge. Ursinus College was founded a year later in 1869. Thus, the name "Collegeville" precedes the establishment of Ursinus College, and it is actually named after the other four-year liberal arts college, the Pennsylvania Female College, which closed in 1880. Collegeville was incorporated as Borough in 1896.
