    Charles G. Zwicker, Edward C. Zwicker
Springfield Township, Montgomery County, adjoins the city of Philadelphia on its northern border. The townshipís six-plus square miles, originally established as ìPennís Manor of Springfield,î was a gift from William Penn to his wife, Gulielma Maria Springett, c. 1681. This historic township was home to a major stagecoach line and its associated taverns and inns, considerable activity during the Revolutionary War, summertime residences of Philadelphiaís wealthy, and subsequent postñWorld War II development as a burgeoning community just over the Philadelphia border. ÝÝSpringfield Townshipís rich history is pictorially represented with a number of previously unpublished photographs from the township historical societ, and wonderful private collections. In these pages, travel through the early colonial and farming settlements of the townshipís original settlers, the turbulence of the Revolutionary War, the arrival of the iron horse, the excitement of White City Amusement Park, the rise and fall of the great mansions and estates, and the explosion of new development as city residents and businesses moved out to the suburbs.
