The Souderton Historic District has been approved by the Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission and it was referred to the National Park Service for final approval for listing on the National Register for Historic Places.
Souderton Hisoric District was designated by the National Park Service on June 6, 2011.
You can read through the paperwork and the maps at the bottom of this article. It is broken into smaller portions but they are still hefty PDF files.
The most frequently asked question has been why the boundaries have been placed where they are. If you walk the streets, your first impression may be that we have an amazing collection of residential buildings that should all be included. Maybe someday we will be able to add more of them. For now, we are confined to a specific time period as defined below from the nomination narrative.
“The Souderton Historic District is a concentration of mid-19th through mid-20th century residential, commercial, religious, and industrial buildings in Souderton, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The architecture of this district generally spans a period of almost seventy-five years (1857-1930) and includes a range of styles in the Early Republic, Mid-19th Century, Late Victorian, Late 19th and Early 20th Century Revivals and Late 19th and Early 20th Century American Movements categories.”
If your building was built after 1930, it was not included in the district. The maps of the district are also included in the files at the bottom of the article. The first is the full district with the following maps featuring details for different portions. The detailed maps let property owners determine if their property has been included.
Enjoy reading the descriptions of our community. We hope it insires you to walk the streets of the histoirc district and look at the building with a new perspective.
