Home to over 3,700 residents, this splendid community is composed of 2.6 square miles and boasts a long, rich history. Skippack was founded by German immigrants and was originally spelled “Schippach,” named for a town of the same name in the Bayern region of Germany, near Frankfurt. Then the village contained a post office, firehouse, shirt factory, furniture maker, blacksmith, liquor store, hat store, printing house, and several inns. Because of its long history, the community is home to numerous places of historic interest. For example, one of the oldest homes still standing in Skippack is the Indenhofen Farmstead, which was built around 1720. In 1973 Indenhofen Farmstead was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as was the Warren Z. Cole House, which also in Skippack.
