This section of the Perkasie
web site explores how the same building, structure, location,
or organization has changed over time. In the case of the Perk,
the building has served a similar purpose over time as a restaurant,
bar, and/or hotel. The Union Hotel has been torn down and replaced
by the new Shelly's & Fenstermacher building and a parking
lot as part of a redevelopment project. The congregation of the
United Methodist Church started in South Perkasie and later moved
to its present 5th & Market Street location.The Perkasie Covered
Bridge was moved to Lenape Park and a new bridge was put in its
place in South Perkasie. The Metal Health Gym was previously a
5 & 10 retail store and for many years was a pharmacy. The
Opera House was a performing arts center and later a factory.
The Plaza Theater was used for movies and other performances and
later was used for a supermarket and other businesses.
