TRAPPE PA – The borough began celebrating its 300th anniversary “with the birth of something new,” the Norristown Times-Herald newspaper reported Saturday (Jan. 28, 2017).
Writer Marian Dennis said “residents of Trappe and the surrounding area flooded into the auditorium of the former Perkiomen Valley school building,” 23 E. First Avenue, to meet with friends, enjoy refreshments and celebrate 300 years of prosperity on a property that holds a lot of history. The former school is being renovated by Gorski Engineering of Collegeville into 30 luxury condos.
The next event in celebration of the tricentennial is a potluck dinner and book launch scheduled for Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. in St. Luke’s United Church of Christ, 200 W. Main St., Dennis noted.
