Located 15 miles from Philadelphia on the banks of the Schuylkill River, the borough of Conshohocken began as a mill town in 1850. It quickly developed into an industrial and manufacturing hub with its prime river location.
Today, Conshohocken has transformed its riverfront into a desirable residential and business area with a wide range of hi-tech companies and exclusive homes. Two SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) regional railroad stations make travel to downtown Philadelphia and surrounding areas quick and easy.
Travel 10 miles to the west and enjoy Valley Forge National Historic Park. History and outdoor recreational activities abound here, with 21 miles of biking trails, 19.5 miles of hiking trails, 17 miles of horse trails, walking tours, and trolley tours.
With several parks and a Fellowship House that holds all types of community events, Conshohocken is a family-friendly, community-oriented borough surrounded by history and tradition, making it a great place for apartment renting.
