Upper Providence Township, PA is a township in Montgomery County, PA. The township population is estimated at 21,219. William Penn originally owned the land that is now Upper Providence. After selling off most of the land, he kept a large tract on the east side of the Schuylkill River, which included Upper and Lower Providence and parts of Perkiomen and Worchester. William Penn named the land “The Manor of Gilberts” after his mother’s maiden name.
The first person to settle in this area was Edward Lane, who bought 2,500 acres of land from William Penn in 1701. Edward and his wife established the Episcopal Church in Lower Providence. In 1717, John Jacob Schrack came to the township from Germany. Schrack was able to convince Rev. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg to relocate to this area. Muhlenberg was the founder of the Lutheran church in the United States. The first of which was founded in Trappe.
In March 1725 the farmers living on this land petitioned to form a new township called Providence. This land included Upper and Lower Providence.
Upper Providence Township was established in 1805 by the division of the former Providence Township along the Perkiomen Creek. In 1896, the Boroughs of Collegeville and Trappe were created from northeastern portions of the township, yielding the present township boundaries.
The town of Trappe is the oldest village in the township. Samuel Seely bought 150 acres of land in 1762 and divided it into town lots. Seely named the town “Landau”. The town was better known by a hotel called “The Trap” and when the town incorporated it selected Trappe over Landau.
The Schuylkill canal was built to help navigate past rapids on the Schuylkill River between Norristown and Pottstown. It was completed in 1825 and was about 5 miles long, extending from Black Rock dam (Lock 60) to Pawlings dam at the Perkiomen creek in Oaks (Lock 61). In the 1830s Lock 60 was doubled in size and again in 1840s the locks were expanded to handle wider boats.
The river traffic helped the surrounding area grow. The settlement of Quincyville started at Lock 60 and the settlement of Lumberville grew at Lock 61. Lumberville thrived with stables for mules, and a general store for boat supplies. In the 1840s these towns changed names with Quincyville becoming Mont Clare and Lunberville becoming Port Providence, which are their current names.
With the coming of railroads in the late 1800s, boat traffic died off. However it was supplemented by recreational boating in the 1920s. Pleasure boats ran between Philadelphia to Reading. In the 1950s the Army Corp of Engineers dredged the Schuylkill River to remove coal silt from upriver. The lower part of the canal was used as a holding basin for the silt
