About the Area
Berks County is a combination of rich farm country, industry, beautiful parks, entertainment and top-notch educational institutions. The county seat, Reading, has a population of 95,112 and is the fourth-largest city in Pennsylvania after Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Allentown. Located in the southeastern part of the state, it is home to 420,000 residents, and is part of the greater Delaware Valley.
The city, which is approximately halfway between the state's most populous city, Philadelphia, and the state capital, Harrisburg, is attractively situated along Route 78 a major transportation route from Central to Eastern Pennsylvania, and lent its name to the now-defunct Reading Railroad, which transported anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania Coal Region to the eastern United States.
The Lenni Lenape people, also known as "Delaware Indians," were the original inhabitants of the Berks/Reading area. The region was then settled by European emigrants from southern and western Germany. The first Amish community in the New World was established in Berks County. The Pennsylvanian German dialect was spoken in the area well into the 1950s. Berks County is home to an Old Order Mennonite community.
Today, Berks County is a hub for higher education, arts and culture and outdoor adventuring. Albright College, Alvernia University, Kutztown University, Penn State Berks and Reading Area Community College all call Berks County home. The Reading Public Museum, the Reading Buccaneers Drum and Bugle Corps and the Berks Opera Company are only a few of the cultural offerings available while Berks County also features French Creek State Park, Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center, the Ruth Zimmerman Natural Area as well as the Schuylkill, Lehigh, Susquehanna and Conestoga rivers.
