West Cocalico started as “Cocalico”, in 1729 and then divided into East and West Cocalico in 1838.  The area of Reinholds was originally settled around 1727.   The Reinholds area contributed firearms to the war for Independence using low-grade iron ore taken from nearby areas. Swiss Mennonites settled the village of Schoeneck in 1733 purchasing 1500 acres from the Penn brothers.  These early settlers were attracted to this area by the heavy timber and rich limestone land.  The original town was laid out around 1780 – 1790. Schoeneck in Pennsylvania Dutch means, “pretty corner."\\
