Hereford Twp, Berks County, PA

HEREFORD, [1] (460 alt.,160 pop.), is an attractive crossroads hamlet in a narrow valley. Although settled by German Schwenkfelders in I732, it was named for Herefordshire in England, the home of iron-masters who later came to the district.

In Hereford is the junction with State 100, which the tour now follows south (R), passing numerous old stone houses and outbuildings.
