Conshohocken, Pennsylvania City Info

The name Conshohocken, found on William Penn's deed, is a derivative of "Gueno-dkeiki-hacking ... the place of the long fine land," as it was described by the Lenni-Lenape Indians. Today, Conshohocken is interpreted as "Pleasant Valley".

In 1712, John Matson, an early settler, acquired land from William Penn that included the west bank of the Schuylkill from the present-day Bridgeport to the Lower Merion Township Line. Peter Matson, John Matson's son built his house along the river and installed a "ford" by placing rocks in the river. That community became known as Matson's Ford, a name that still endures today as a street in town.

Matson's Ford played a small part in history during the Revolutionary War. In 1777, Washington's army left Whitemarsh and traveled down Conshohocken's Fayette Street towards Matson's Ford. They constructed a bridge of wagons, over which rails were laid as the soldiers crossed under the command of Lafayette. As they were coming over, Lord Cornwallis and his British soldiers appeared from the hills. Our soldiers were forced to retreat and cross Swede's Ford into Valley Forge on December 13, 1777

The first bridge connecting West Conshohocken with its neighboring land, Conshohocken was a wooden bridge in 1866. This bridge was later replaced by an iron bridge build in 1972. The cost of walking over the bridge was one cent. Driving across the bridge with two horses cost twelve and a half cents each way. In 1921, the iron bridge was replaced by a concrete bridge. This bridge was later replaced in the 1980's with a new and improved bridge heavily used today. Read more about the history of our bridges.

West Conshohocken's major traffic artery is the Schuylkill Expressway, which formally opened to traffic at 9:00 AM on December 8, 1952. Borough officials and State Highway Department engineers participated in a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Another important highway is the Blue Route. In 1981 three miles were finished, extending from Ridge Pike in Plymouth Township to the Schuylkill Expressway, relieving traffic between West Conshohocken and Conshohocken, which had reached 38,000 vehicles per day. Today, the Blue Route extends from the Northeast Turnpike to the Philadelphia National Airport - a big improvement in the past 21 years.

West Conshohocken is a central location point between Philadelphia and area suburbs. Today, many entrepreneurs are building their businesses in West Conshohocken because of location, lower taxes and ore importantly, the small town feeling.
