West Bradford Twp Page



 West Bradford Twp West Bradford Township, originally part of Bradford Township, was organized in 1705 and divided into East and West Bradford in 1731. Bradford's earliest settlers were English Quakers, most having acquired large tracts of land by patent, which subsequently were divided into farms of a hundred or more acres. Agriculture played a formative role in West Bradford's history.  It had a significant impact on both the historical landscape and types of structures built. West Bradford has also exhibited a strong tradition of cottage industries with blacksmiths, wheelwrights, joiners, coopers, pump makers, tinsmiths, shoemakers, and cigar makers at work both on the farmsteads and in the villages. Because of the significance of West Bradford's water resources, milling was also very important in the Township's development. The Township has eight structures and three historic districts - Marshallton, Trimblesville, and Northbrook - on the National Register of Historic Places.
