There once was a named Blandtown in Berks County. Prehaps you can figure out where it was-and, with a slight name modification-still is.When Robert Blan purchased a large tract of land in what is now Maidencreek Township in the late 18th century, he set up a black-smith shop, sold lots to others, and created a village that came to be called "Bland's Town" or "Blandtown." For about 80 years, the village grew slowly but steadily. But, its fame and nane would change forever when the railroad came to town.It was the 36-mile East Penn Railroad that connected Reading and Allentown and serviced mills, farms, and manufacturers in a string of stations along the way. On April 30, 1859, the first train made its way from Reading to Allentown, with railroad president Edward M. Clymer aboard. According to contemporary reports, when Clymer's entourage stopped in Blandtown, he declared that the station must undergo a name change.In 1909, the Pennsylvania-German Magazine noted: " Upon arriving in Blandtown, as it was called, President Clymer said he was opposed to "town" being used as part of the name of the name of any place, as the people might increase until it became a city and still be call town." It was then decided to attach on to Bland and name the station Blandon. We all now know that nether Blandtown nor Blandon ever became a city.
