Douglassville: Not Just Another Town Ending In ""Ville""
So you're thinking of moving to the area. That alone sets Douglassville apart from every other “ville” around.
Settled by the Swedish, a group whose current contributions stateside include IKEA and...well, little else (that we know of), Douglassville's paltry population of fewer than 4,000 can claim one kernel of fame: Daniel Boone. The area's school district is even named after him.
More a community of housing subdivisions than a full on town all its own, Douglassville is an interesting political and economic entity that you'll have to see to believe. And if that sounds over the top, then probably it is.
Douglassville Rental Figures to Ponder
This town is big on brick-laden living quarters. Whether such quarters include rentals is unknown, but far from mysterious are the apartment prices you can expect to confront.
Now make the ghost of Daniel Boone proud by adventuring forth and selecting among the rentals listed below.
This old school lookin' place is tucked away south of Allentown, PA and from what we can gather not much is known about it, except of course that your new apartment is located here! Perhaps there's an X File on the town somewhere in the recesses of the FBI, because this place is about as cryptic as the old timey architecture that marks the area. Douglassville's population is unknown, and most of the juicy demographic data we're used to dredging up is unavailable. But what we can tell you is that it comprises an area of less than 1 square mile. You don't have to be a land developer to know that that's small with a capital, well, ""small.""
Maybe one reason for the ultra-petite stature lies in the fact that it's a community within a town within a township within a county. The town being Amity, the township Union Townships, and the county Washington County. Whew! We've heard of the woman behind the man (and vice versa, to be fair), but the community behind the town behind the township behind the county? Now that's a new one.
One thing these leafy, soggy, long built-in northeast coast locales always seem to have is an abundance of parks and quasi-Gothic landmarks. (Or maybe we just mean mildly macabre.) It touts Hill Road Park, Monocacy Hill Preserve, and the Lake Drive Park and Recreation Area. And as we mentioned earlier, the community was settled by Swedes, and from all accounts their particularly efficient sense of how to build a roof over one's head has been on display as early as the 18th century. Consider it their premier display case. Whether it's the aptly named Old Swedes House, St. Gabriel's Episcopalian Church, or the entirety of Morlatton Village, they all contain the Essence of Scandinavia (™).
Douglassville's Day Out
Making a day out of Douglassville alone might be a daunting task. Not because there's too much to do in 24 hours, but rather not nearly enough. Unless you redefine ""doing something"" to include sipping hot cocoa at the home of an elderly resident and listening to stories of the good old days. Actually, that doesn't sound so bad. In fact it sounds like a very mature and edifying thing to do. But we digress.
So according to Uptake.com, visiting the individual graves of long dead residents of Douglassville is considered a multiple event endeavor. One grave, one outing. We suggest making your itinerary a little less complicated by consolidating such visits into one official visit. So, why not officially visit Daniel Boone, James Warren, Anthony Sadowski, and of course the Douglass family themselves?
After mostly standing and looking at graves (and possibly sipping cocoa with old folks), we understand if you feel the need to get the blood pumping. Hike or cycle along Thun Trail to do just this, and along the way witness an abundance of old stone buildings and eye-catching leafy foliage. You can thank the Historic Preservation Trust of Berks County for this one, folks. In fact they're located in Douglassville, so you can do it in person if ya like. Heck, when you’re in your new apartment you might even be neighbors!
