1760 - 2010

Settled around 1724 by Everhard Ream and founded as a town by his son Tobias Ream in 1760, originally called Zoar. In 1777, during the Revolutionary War, a field hospital was set up here for wounded soldiers from the Battle of Brandwine, some of whom are buried in the cemetery. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Reamstown was an important stop near the halfway point on the Lancaster-Reading stage coach line.
