NORTHWALESALIVE.COM serves North Wales, a borough in Montgomery County within the North Penn Valley. North Wales was settled by Welsh immigrants who named it after their former home in Wales. Part of a 1702 William Penn land grant, this rich farming country was given the name "Gwynedd" for the homeland of the earliest settlers. It began as a pastoral village in agricultural Gwynedd Township, consisting of a number of farms and a Lutheran and Reformed church. Main Street was originally an Indian trail, which later became the Great Road in 1728. By 1828 it was a toll road with the present day name Sumneytown Pike.
