As its name suggests, North Wales was settled by Welsh immigrants who named it after the region of the same name back home. Part of a 1702 William Penn land grant, this rich farming country was given the Welsh name "Gwynedd" for the homeland of the earliest settlers and it began as a pastoral village in agricultural Gwynedd Township. North Wales was the first borough in the North Penn Area to establish a Historic Preservation District. Fun fact: John Oates of Hall and Oates hails from North Wales.
