A SHORT HISTORY OF EDEN TOWNSHIP

Eden Township began its life in 1691 as part of Old Sadsbury
Township in Chester County.  Later when Lancaster County was
formed, Old Sadsbury divided in two with half staying in Chester
County & the other half becoming part of the newly formed Lancaster
County.  Renamed Sadsbury Township, it was the first settled &
organized township in Lancaster.

In 1744 Bart Township broke off of Sadsbury taking the areas that
would eventually be both Eden Township & Quarryville Village with it.   

In 1855 Eden Township (with Quarryville still part of its area) was
officially established.  The township, which took its name from the
furnace at Mt. Eden, had soil rich in limestone, a picturesque
landscape, & highly productive mills.  These characteristics have led
many to erroneously think the township was named after the
"Garden of Eden".

In 1892 Quarryville was officially chartered as a Borough making it a
separate entity from Eden Township.

Today Eden Township’s beauty & productive agricultural environment
make it an  important part of Lancaster County’s past & future.
