Shaped like a diamond puzzle piece until 1896, its history is linked to evolving movement and settlements beginning with Indian tribes, William Penn, and the American Revolution. Opening of the Pottstown Expressway, joined by expansion of the sewer plant, led to rapid development of township farmland. November 12, 2005 marked the Upper Providence Township Incorporation Bicentennial.
