Royersford

 Royersford is in Montgomery County and is about 32 miles from Philadelphia on the Schuylkill River.

The town drew its name from the location of a ford across the Schuylkill River, which happened to be adjacent to land owned by the Royer family.  

It had several stove factories, two glass and bottle works, hosiery and silk mills, a dye and bleaching plant, manufactories of bricks, gas meters, stockings, shirts, shafting parts, wagons and agricultural implements.

The borough was formed from the southeastern corner of Limerick Township in 1879. The Spring-Ford Area School District serves Royersford.
