Bechtelsville is a Berks County borough in the state of Pennsylvania. The village began in 1728 when the Bechtel family arrived from Weinheim, Germany, and built a house where the village now stands. It was joined by a few homes and mills but was not incorporated until 1890. A post office was established there in 1852, and the railroad's arrival brought an influx of new businesses; the village continued growing until the mid-1900s when Highway 100 bypassed Bechtelsville, causing the discontinuation of rail service. Many previously established businesses didn't survive, and today the village has become a community of well-maintained single-family houses, community facilities, and community services.
Search for an RV in Berks County, and you will have your choice from a selection of units well suited to this environment. Other communities also have something to share with visitors such as Bethlehem, which is widely known for its music, cultural, and film festivals. Lansdale is home to a Kugel ball, a large sphere that is supported by but doesn't float on a thin layer of pressurized water that allows the extremely heavy ball to be moved with the touch of a hand. Exton is the main shopping district for outlying areas in Chester County. Morgantown is named after its founder, Colonel Jacob Morgan, whose home still exists and is said to have briefly housed George Washington. Reading has been called “The Pretzel City” due to its proliferation of pretzel bakeries and is one of the first communities to turn outlet shopping into a tourist attraction. Your Bechtelsville travel trailer rental is your ticket to exploring and experiencing these destinations and more.
