Norristown, Pennsylvania

Norristown is a municipality in and the county seat of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania situated along the Schuylkill River. Norristown was incorporated as a borough in 1812; it was one of the largest communities under Pennsylvania's Borough Code. Since 1986, Norristown has been operating under a Home Rule Charter. Though sometimes still referred to as “the borough”, the Municipality of Norristown is its official name. Settled as a modest seventeenth-century community, Norristown became an industrial boomtown and attracted immigrants to its forges, railways and mills. "The Biggest Borough in the World", was once Norristown's self-proclaimed slogan considering the industrious nature of the town. One of the most historically important remaining structures of old Norristown and a popular attraction is Selma Mansion located on the west end of town. Today, Norristown is home to more than 30,500 residents.

In the past, Norristown had extensive manufactures of cigars, tacks, wire, screws, boilers, bolts, silos, tanks, iron, hosiery, knitting machines, underwear, shirts, lumber and milling machinery, paper boxes, rugs, carpets, etc. Today, Norristown’s economy is driven largely by Montgomery County government jobs, the legal profession, and health care. Montgomery Hospital and Norristown State Hospital are located there. While the downtown has suffered in recent years, the residential areas of Norristown remain largely well-maintained.

Norristown’s longstanding industrial and manufacturing activity places the city in a high risk category for asbestos exposure.
