History & History Related Items

Manheim history:

Manheim was named for the native city of Henry William Stiegel, founder of the borough. Stiegel came from Manheim, Germany.

Manheim was founded in 1762. The tract of land was originally a gift to James Logan, a secretary to William Penn, from Hannah Penn, Williamís widow in 1734. In 1762 it was sold to Henry William Stiegel, Charles and Alexander Stedman. The three men are said to be the founders of Manheim though Stiegel is the most well-known. Stiegel had specific ideas for his future in business and as he planned the community he kept this in mind. He built himself a mansion and office building in the center of town. In another area he built his plant for glassmaking. He called it a glasshouse and began production in 1764. More information may be found on the below mentioned history page.
