A Brief of History of Berks County
Berks County was formed on March 11, 1752 from parts of Chester County, Lancaster County, and Philadelphia County. It was named Berks after Berkshire England, the childhood home of William Penn.
Berks County hosts a number of beautiful parks. One great area to visit is Gring’s Mills, which includes two historical buildings and extensive recreational facilities. Elsewhere, the Kutztown Historical Society has a museum dedicated to preserving early Pennsylvania history.
