Worcester Township was formed in 1733 when twenty-two landowners petitioned the court to form a new township of about 10,000 acres. Before 1733, this area was called New Bristol. Worcester's name is said to come from the Saxon word "caester," meaning a station or camp. Worcester's first settlers were English, German, Welsh, and Dutch. German settlers included Mennonites, Schwenkfelders, and German Reformed - all groups that are still active here today.
During the Revolutionary War, Washington's Army camped in Worcester before and after the Battle of Germantown. Peter Wentz Farmstead is the most well known place where Washington camped locally. After this excitement and danger, the township returned to its agricultural ways. By 1785, Worcester had three gristmills and one saw mill, most powered by the Zacharias Creek.
There are three villages in the township: Center Point, the geographical center of Montgomery County; Fairview Village, with its commanding view toward Philadelphia on Fairview Hills; and Cedars, formerly Cedar Hills, named for the abundance of native cedars growing there.
