Skippack is a charming Montgomery County village. The district is full of American history and exists today as a thriving commercial district surrounded by desirable neighborhoods and estates.
German immigrants were among the first Europeans to settle here. This relatively small wave of immigrants was the same wave that settled Germantown and other villages along the Schuylkill River. They brought with them agriculture, textile know-how and German-style construction. A handful of these buildings still stand today.
Skippack is now defined by a central commercial district filled with restaurants, antique shops, wineries, art galleries, ice cream shops, nurseries and other curiosities. On the weekends, the town comes alive with visitors eager to explore the nooks and crannies of this town.
Evansburg State Park borders the town. The large park provides space for hiking, fishing, picnicking and camping. Skippack Creek runs the length of the park, meandering through the forest. Stables nearby also provide trail riding/horseback riding lessons. Saddlebrook Equestrian, located back in town, provides early childhood equestrian training.
