Hi - I'm Brian. I am an attorney that practices in Pennsylvania. I am a former sex crimes prosecutor and my day-to-day cases are almost exclusively helping survivors of sexual abuse get justice. My team and I are ready to help.
This article is sponsored by the child molestation law firm in Lansdale. Our legal team is happy to showcase the feature of our local borough to you.
Lansdale is a densely-populated commuter town in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Located northwest of Philadelphia, it is the center of the North Penn Valley. The European immigrants to settle in the borough were members of the Jenkins family on around 120 acres of land. In the 1850s, Lansdale grew and expanded rapidly with the construction of the North Pennsylvania Railroad. More settlers, housing and businesses were brought to the area.
In 1873, the Lansdale Borough was incorporated. It was named after the chief surveyor of the North Penn Railroad, Phillip Lansdale Fox. As of the 2010 census, the borough has a population of 16,269 people and a total area of 3.1 square miles.
Lansdale Silk Hosiery Compy-Interstate Hosiery Mills, Inc. was built in four phases from 1922 to 1961. The historic silk mill complex consists of the original 1922 two-story building that sits on a brownstone foundation and the 1932 three-story, red brick building. Home to textile manufactures until the 1970s, the complex was used to produce women's full-fashion silk hosiery. On December 3, 2004, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
Situated on Jenkins Avenue, Jenkins Homestead was built around 1805. The two-and-a-half-story, five-bay historic home is of the English vernacular farmstead architectural style. As the oldest structure in Lansdale, it was added to the NRHP on September 15, 1977.
