Town Tours Village Walks – Johnsontown in Downingtown
August 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Created as a speculative development in the late 1800’s, Johnsontown initially did not thrive. The first residents were Irish, many of whom worked on the railroad. Geographically, the area was hemmed in with only one major road going in and out. After World War I, Italian immigrants dominated the area, creating an entire community unto itself, complete with churches, stores, butchers, and entertainment through the creation of St. Anthony’s Lodge, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019.
