History of Laureldale
Berks County > Municipalities > Laureldale Borough
According to early reports, it was Clayton N. Fidler who suggested that the name "Laurel" be taken from Laurel Hill and be combined with the "dale" in Rosedale to form the favored name of Laureldale. It was this name that was then employed when steps were taken to incorporate the community. On April 8, 1930, President Judge Paul N. Schaeffer signed a decree making Laureldale the 29th borough in Berks County. Laureldale Borough has a Community Park located on Elizabeth Avenue and a Playground located on Rosedale Avenue for all ages to enjoy.
