Franconia Township is in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania with a population of 13,000 people. The township covers a total area of 13.9 square miles. Of that area, 0.07% is water that is in the Delaware watershed and is drained by the East Branch Perkiomen Creek and the West Branch Neshaminy Creek. Its villages include Earlington, Franconia, Morwood, and Reliance. Route 113 crosses the water NE-to-SW and its other major road is north-to-south Allentown Road. In the late 1720s, Franconia Township encompassed parts of what are now Souderton and Telford. Together the three municipalities fell under the jurisdiction of Salford Township. In 1731, Franconia split from its neighboring communities to form its own municipality. Franconia means “land of the Franks.” Beginning in the 1600s, a large German population began to grow in Franconia, and descendants of some of the Township’s original settlers still live here. Early Franconia residents found that Indian Creek and its valley had its own population of already established Native Americans, whose artifacts can still be found within the area. Religious freedom attracted the European immigrants who settled here. Much of Franconia’s population was Mennonite, and they built meeting places and churches for worship throughout the township.
