Monroe Court is an affordable, well-maintained, open area townhome community located in rural Skippack, PA, a few miles from the Lansdale exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Monroe Court lies amongst farms, stables and parks and a portion of the Perkiomen Trail runs through the community. It is in walking distance to township parks and Skippack Village. Evansburg State Park is nearby and Monroe Court is part of the Perkiomen Valley School District.
The community is situated on 25+ acres of land formerly owned by the Hunsicker family, who owned the property from the mid-eighteenth century until 1926. Valentine Hunsicker (1700—1771), an immigrant weaver, moved to the Pennsylvania colony in 1717 to help construct the Mennonite Meeting House in Skippack Township. Hunsicker settled near the meeting house around 1720 and was active in the Mennonite community. Naturalized in 1731, Hunsicker purchased several parcels of land in Skippack Township and constructed a house. He and his descendants became leaders of the Mennonite community.
T.H. Properties purchased the land for the development of Monroe Court in August 2003. The townhomes were built in 2 phases starting in June 2004 and finishing October 2006. The townhomes have various floor plans and are situated on private loop streets.
The original farmhouse still stands at the community’s entrance and is used as a multi-family dwelling. The Hunsicker House is not considered part of the Monroe Court community. It is private property. Therefore, its owner and tenants are not subject to the Monroe Court Rules and Regulations.
