The Freedom Valley Chronicles:
Former Street Names - Part One
History does not stand still.
The street you live on today or that you travel this week may have had a different name in years past.
Below is a list of some of the roadways in the Freedom Valley that have different names today:
Alternate Route 422
Spring Mill Road
Whitemarsh and Plymouth Turnpike
Each of these streets are within the borders of Conshohocken, Plymouth, West Conshohocken, and/or Whitemarsh.
Let us know if you are aware of the current names for these same roadways.
We’ll publish a news column in a few days with the full results.

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
