History


Maidencreek Township was established in December of 1746 and was named after the creek that runs diagonally through the township. Quakers originally settled the area in 1732 and lived peacefully
among the Lenni Lenape Indians. Around 1800, the Quakers began to move west and their farms and homesteads were purchased by Germans. Later the Scots, Welsh and Irish settled in the area but for the next 100 years, "Pennsylvania Dutch" was the predominate language spoken in the township. Four out of five people were farmers and were very industrious and religious.
