The county seat of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania is Norristown, a municipality located along the Schuylkill River only six miles from Philadelphia. Norristown has a population of about 34,300 making it the fourth most populous municipality in the county and second-most populous borough in Pennsylvania. It is also the largest non-township municipality in Montgomery County. The area where Norristown sits was originally owned by the family of Isaac Norris, a prominent Quaker merchant and former mayor of Philadelphia during the early 1700s. Norris purchased the land directly from William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the growing city center of Philadelphia. When a collection of communities decided to form Montgomery County in 1784, Norristown was named the county seat of government. It was not until March 31, 1812, that Norristown was the first in Montgomery Country to officially be incorporated as a Pennsylvania State Borough. Throughout the 1800s and early 1900s, Norristown developed into a thriving industrial and retail center. The following industries called Norristown home and provided ample employment for skilled laborers and artisans including factories, foundries, icehouses, lumber yards, and textile mills.
The downtown also featured a bustling shopping district filled with department stores, several theaters, and restaurants that attracted visitors from throughout the region.
