The villages of Milford township are Trumbauersville, Spinnersville, (Spinnerstown) near the Lehigh county line, Steinsburg, and Milford Square.  The largest and most populous is Trumbauersville, formerly called Charlestown, a place of some sixty families, built half a mile along both sides of the road from Philadelphia to Allentown.  Half a century ago it contained abut a dozen houses.  The Eagle hotel, which claims to be the patriarch house of the village, has stood an hundred years, but from appearances that of George Wonsidler is nearly as old.  Several of the dwellings are at least fify years old. 

For several years Trumbauersville has been the seat of extensive cigar manufacturing, turning out two millions of cigars a year; a single maker, Mr. Croman, employing thirty-seven hands, and making one million six hundred thousand annually  Ther are ten shops and sixty hands engaged in this work.

In the village there are two stores and the customary mechanics.  The oldest inhabitants, in 1874, were George Heist, eighty-three, Frederick Heist and John Jacob Smith, of abou the same age, and Joseph Reiter, seventy-five, all of whom had lived there half a century.  There is but little room for diversity of political opinion, ieven if allowed, for the inhabitants all vote the same ticket.  Trumbauersville has a handsome union church, built of stone, at a cost of $15,000.  The datestone tells us that it was "founded 1769; re-built 1805; re-built 1868."  The ceiling of the audience chamber is handsomely painted in frescoe; a fine pipe organ stands in the gallery, and a shapely spire points heavenward.  The size of the building is sixty-two by forty-six feet, and it was originally called the Lower Milford church.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1864) 2nd Inaugural

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
