Formed in 1752, Berks County was named after the English county from where William Penn originated – Berkshire, which is often abbreviated to Berks. Construction of the Reading Railroad was probably the greatest single factor in the development of Berks County. Established in 1833 to transport coal, by 1870 the Reading Railroad had become the largest corporation in the world. Today there are many old and new places to have a great time. The underground wonder, Crystal Cave Park – famous for its sparkling, diamond-like crystals, is the most popular natural attraction in Pennsylvania. Visit Roadside America, the largest indoor miniature village in the world - it spans more than 200 years and lets you see how people lived in pioneer days. Race fans must drive to the Maple Grove Raceway, the quarter – mile racetrack that is home to many historic drag races.
Many famous people hail from Berks County, including frontiersmen Daniel Boone, former Blue’s Clues host Steve Berns, actress Kelly McGillis, Grammy Award winning actress singer Taylor Swift, and YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley.
