Visit Conshohocken - Best of Conshohocken

Conshohocken (/ˌkɒnʃəˈhɒkən/) (Lenape: Kanshihakink ) is a town and borough on the Schuylkill River in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in suburban Philadelphia. Historically a large mill town and industrial and manufacturing center, after the decline of industry in recent years Conshohocken has developed into a center of riverfront commercial and residential development. In the regional slang, it is sometimes referred to by the colloquial nickname Conshy (/ˈkɒnʃi/).The name "Conshohocken" is Unami-Lenapi (Delaware Indian) for either Kanshi'hak'ing, or "Elegant-ground- place" or, more likely, Chottschinschu'hak'ing, which means "Big-trough-ground-place" or "Large-bowl-ground-place" to denote the big bend in the Tulpe'hanna (Turtle River, or modern Schuylkill River). In 1940, a New York Times columnist noted lightheartedly that "Some of the residents of Conshohocken, Pa. are concerned because Kitty Foyle's father, in Christopher Morley's novel Kitty Foyle (Lippincott), uses the name of their town as a swear word. Others think that it may help advertise the town. One thing is sure—it makes a rattling good cuss-word." The sister community of West Conshohocken is located on the opposite side of the Schuylkill River.
