The Borough itself was incorporated on April 6, 1903, and is approx. 0.55 square miles in area.The Borough was originally part of Perkiomen Township and home to the first copper mine in Pennsylvania. Ice harvesting was a major industry in the area. Several large icehouses were located along the creek, and ice was regularly shipped to Philadelphia. Mills devoted to grain and textiles were also very prominent which is evident by the existing historic structures. Being situated along the Perkiomen Creek made the Borough a great summer resort community during its early existence.

An elementary school, library, post office, and a 6.47 acre park along the Perkiomen Creek inhabit the Borough.
