Montgomery County | FlourtownWhy Flourtown is more than just about Flour?
To reduce Flourtown, PA univocally to its designation of a town is definitely a misnomer; although, the formulation of its nominal origin came about by the production of flour with its historical local mills. Contrary to what it may appear as agrarian in nature, the place is census-designated, meaning that it is bound by the demographic and statistical delineation of data by the Census Bureau. This further means that its urbanity is more than its surrounding towns, Erdenheim, for example. It can be statistically measured since it has, ironically with its urban status, a definitive population concentration in terms of residency. It is in this statistical measurability that we dispel the seemingly stereotype of its being just a flour-town, a playful way to put its metaphorical agricultural connotation with its name.
In hopes of not discouraging the place not to be lived in but of persuading, at the very least, that the place is worthy of its residential status than the surrounding places, the numbers and data analysis of Flourtown, PA might just convince that it is and perhaps maybe the place one is looking for.
