The population was estimated at 55,234 in 2008.[3] Abington Township is one of Montgomery County's oldest communities dating back to before 1700 and being incorporated in 1704. It is home to some of the county's oldest transportation routes, industries and churches. Many of these older business and transportation centers were the forerunners of modern Abington. Today, Abington Township is a highly desirable residential area that contains the Willow Grove Park Mall, several small businesses, and a few of Montgomery County's largest employers.[2] Contents 1 History 2 Geography 3 Demographics 4 Government 5 Communities 6 Schools 7 Services infrastructure 8 Notable natives and residents 9 References // History The land that comprises Abington today was purchased from the native Lenape by William Penn during the 1680s. By the next decade, a handful of European settlers built and lived in Hill Township, at the crossroads of Susquehanna Street Road and Old York Road. After brief times under other names, the township incorporated as Abington in 1704. The name's origin is not known.[4] Some institutions have been in Abington for most of its existence. The cornerstone of the original Abington Friends School, in operation since before Abington's incorporation, is used in today's school building. The Abington Presbyterian Church opened in the early years of the township, and while the original building is gone, its graveyard is still used today. The railroad reached the township in 1855, with the first station building erected in 1873, on the site of today's Noble Station.[4] Geography According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 15.5 square miles (40.0 km²), of which, 15.4 square miles (40.0 km²) of it is land and none of the area is covered with water.

Rather it is governed by a Board of Commissioners, who are elected one from each of the township's fifteen wards. A President of the Board is elected from among these commissioners, and serves as the head of government for Abington Township. Carol T. DiJoseph is the current Commission President.[2] Most of the township is in the Thirteenth Congressional District (represented by Rep. Allyson Schwartz) with a small part in the Eighth Congressional District (represented by Rep. Patrick Murphy). In 2004, Pennsylvanian political scientists Dr. G. Terry Madonna and Dr. Michael Young identified Abington Township as an especially interesting political bellwether—a local area "looked to for early readings of how national elections will turn out."[6] Communities Abington Township comprises sixteen "communities" as follow alphabetically: Communities: Abington Ardsley Crestmont Elkins Park Glenside Hollywood Huntingdon Valley McKinley Meadowbrook Noble North Hills Roslyn Roychester Rydal Willow Grove The communities are unofficial, unincorporated subdivisions of the township, corresponding roughly to voting districts and elementary school placement. Their primary importance aside from community identity is the postal system (e.g., to send a letter to someone living in the Glenside community, you would address the letter to Glenside, Pennsylvania rather than Abington Township, Pennsylvania). Additionally, some portions of some of these subdivisions, including Glenside, Huntingdon Valley, Willow Grove, and Elkins Park, are actually in neighboring townships.[2] Schools Abington is served by the Abington School District. The elementary schools in this township are: Copper Beech Elementary Highland Elementary McKinley Elementary Overlook Elementary Roslyn Elementary Rydal Elementary Willow Hill Elementary The middle school (grades 7-9) is Abington Junior High School and the senior high (grades 10-12) is Abington Senior High School. There are several private schools located inside the township, such as Meadowbrook and Abington Friends School. Penn State’s Abington campus is located in the Rydal section of the township. The school district received some notoriety in the 1960s when it became one of the key parties in the school prayer controversy, with Abington School District v. Schempp. The Supreme Court case resulted in a declaration of the unconstitutionality of school-sanctioned Bible reading. The Elementary Schools, Junior High School, and Senior High school within Abington School District have recently undergone a series of renovations and rebuilding resulting in more up-to-date and sophisticated structures.
