Spotlight on Worcester

Spotlight on Worcester

Located in central Montgomery County, Worcester Township is known for its beautiful country roads, preserved farmland, parks, and trails. Worcester’s large amount of open space means residents enjoy lovely scenery and less congestion than in many suburban areas.

Close to the many shops and restaurants in popular Skippack Village, Worcester is also just a short drive to the Elmwood Park Zoo. One of the township’s historic attractions is the Peter Wentz Farmstead, built in 1758 and impressively restored to reflect life in the 1770s.

Worcester Township is part of the well-regarded Methacton School District, along with Lower Providence Township. School district boundaries reflect boundaries of municipalities like townships and boroughs and are not determined on the basis of a property’s mailing address. Most homes in Worcester Township do not have a Worcester mailing address. Most have either a Lansdale, Norristown, Eagleville, or Collegeville address.

Over the last four months, the average sold price for a home in Worcester Township was $441,884. The lowest was $157,000, and the highest was $1,000,000. For single-family homes, the average was $493,927, and for townhouses, it was $316,980. (Statistics from BrightMLS as of 3/26/20.)

Though more rural than most surrounding areas, Worcester is nevertheless within commuting distance to a wide variety of businesses in Oaks, King of Prussia, Malvern, Blue Bell, Fort Washington, and Horsham, as well as to pharmaceutical sites in Lansdale and Collegeville.
