Conshohocken History Night at the Fellowship House of Conshohocken

On Friday, November 4th local historian, Jack Coll, held a Conshohocken History Night. This was a great night of dinner, drinks and a slide show going through the years of Conshohocken.

Coll spends upwards of 50 hours ploughing through his massive collection of 15,000 photos to create a one-of-a-kind slide show. This event was fueled by the success of the two previous events — which raised $3,800 for the Conshohocken library and $2,000 for the Colonial Neighborhood Council.
This is one of the pictures that was submitted by Jack Coll, The Conshohocken Super Service station, located on Spring Mill Avenue and Walnut Street, opened in 1929. It advertised having all the latest appliances for quick and thorough handling of work on the new, motorized cars. Coll’s old photos have been known to spark up conversation between those who remember some of the 17 hotels and 230 mom-and-pop shops that once called the borough home.
The Conicelli family attended this event and made a donation that was matched by Toyota Motor Corp.. The money raised went to the Fellowship House, which gives recreation and education service opportunities for the citizens of the Borough of Conshohocken and the surrounding area. The Fellowship House was built in 1952 as a recreational haven for the borough’s youth, the Fellowship House has grown into a multi-facted facility for kids and adults, with the addition of a $3 million expansion in 2004.
