The township was established in 1703, it was settled primarily by English, Welsh and Germans. Historic communities represented within the township boundaries are Erdenheim, Enfield, Flourtown, Oreland and Wyndmoor.
Bethlehem Pike between Flourtown and Erdenheim represents one of the oldest commercial corridors in the Delaware Valley. What makes the area unique is that many of the inns and mill buildings that tell the history of the early development of the corridor still remain, providing a unique identity to the corridor. A rich resource of available historic properties within the corridor provides an exciting foundation for rehabilitation of the corridor. Source: Flourtown-Erdenheim Vision Plan
