The Railroads of King of Prussia


The Railroads of King of Prussia, PA: The Past Leads to the Future

By Michael Stefan Shaw (King of Prussia Historical Society, 185 pages)

Shaw’s strong narrative carries this well-illustrated tome about rural Upper Merion and a village called King of Prussia, which grew into dual economic juggernauts, largely due to the region’s railroads. Eventually, highways marginalized the rail lines. But that could change soon with renewed demand for passenger service to and from KOP.
