Six months of covering Montgomery County led to a discovery of many amazing finds, from Sumneytown where the East Coast ends and Middle America begins, to Elkins Park where the trees are as old as the wealth that surrounds them, writes Brian X. McCrone for NBC10.
According to McCrone, his exploration of the Pennsylvania’s third-most populous county has only just begun. He first embarked on his adventure last September, with a daylong journey across Montco.
His trip began on Cottman Avenue at the border with Philadelphia, taking the road west along Township Line Road to Church Road. From there, McCrone drove past Arcadia University and onto Skippack Pike, passing through Blue Bell before finding himself in Wentzville.
Continuing his journey, McCrone drove through Schwenksville’s and when he saw Perkiomen for the first time as he crossed the creek, he found himself enchanted by one of the county’s most prominent geographical features.
That day, and the following six months uncovered a simple truth to the journalist. There are so many stories to tell here, and now he is telling them through his weekly column for NBC10.
“I’ll be traveling soon to a town near you to share the many stories Montgomery County has to offer,“ enthused McCrone.
