Northampton Township is a growing suburban community of some 40,000 residents. The 26 square mile municipality is located 12 miles northeast of Philadelphia, PA. The first Europeans to come to the Township were English immigrants who arrived with William Penn in the late 1600's.
It was these settlers who named the area after Northamptonshire, a small village outside of London. The Township was incorporated in 1722.
By that time, Dutch farmers joined the English colonists to settle in places destined to become known as Richboro, Holland, Churchville, Rocksville, Addisville, and Jacksonville - all located within Northampton Township.
