We are located in southeastern Pennsylvania, about 15 miles from Center City Philadelphia. The Borough is 1.03 square miles in area and is home to over 7,800 people. Over the last three decades, Conshohocken has developed into one of the most important activity centers in Montgomery County. Conshohocken represents one of America’s most successful transformations from a mill town to a modern center of office and hotel services and water front residential living. Historically a large mill town and industrial and manufacturing center, after the decline of industry in recent years Conshohocken has developed into a center of riverfront commercial and residential development.
On May 15th, 1850, Conshohocken became the third incorporated borough in the county, after Norristown and Pottstown. The land for this new borough was taken in equal amounts from Plymouth and Whitemarsh Townships. The borough developed into a large industrial and manufacturing center shortly after its incorporation. Today, however, the borough has experienced a major redevelopment with large office towers and riverfront development. Conshohocken, along with its neighbor West Conshohocken will continue to provide new job opportunities for area residents. It should be noted that some Conshohocken addresses may actually be located in Plymouth or Whitemarsh Townships.
