Nantmeal Village Historic District

East Nantmeal Twp, Chester County, PA

"One of the first Welsh settlers, Richard Iddings, founded Nantmeal Village located now midway between Pottstown and Downingtown, even before the name Nantmeal township first appeared in 1722. It was not until 1876 when David K. Loomis set up the first post office in the village that the name was officially recognized.

"...Nantmeal, as it was originally spelled, means 'sweet water' or 'land of the sweet stream'" [1]
