About the Kingsfield Community
Kingsfield is an active adult community of 66 single-family
homes located on 27 acres in Franconia Township, Montgomery County,

Souderton, which is approximately halfway between Philadelphia

There are three home models in the Kingsfield community: Barkley, Coventry and Durham. The floor plans are available only to homeowners because of security concerns. Homeowners can retrieve their floor plan and make it available to prospective buyers.

Association's services are supported by homeowner dues, currently
at $195 a month, and an occasional assessment for extraordinary costs such as excess snow removal.

The Kingsfield Community was developed by Cowpath Associates,
L.P., owned by Jeffrey C. Grosse, Stanley H. Geiger and C.
Richard Quade. Construction of the 66 homes began in the spring
of 2000 by Quade Homes.
The acreage of the Kingsfield Community is part of a
1,000-acre tract of land shown in the map at left. That 1,000-acre tract, most of which is now the Borough of Souderton, was settled in the early 1700s by Thomas
Fairman, one of the first settlers who arrived in the Delaware
Valley in 1682. The deed, which was issued in 1708 for those 1,000 acres, was
the first deed ever issued for land within the present limits of
Franconia Township. The 1,000-acre tract was purchased in 1755 by George Cressman who then divided the property into several parcels, keeping one of them for himself.
Records show that a farm consisting of 100 acres of the
Fairman tract was sold to Christian Benner in 1755 by Cressman (see the box in the image). That 100-acre tract of land is bordered on the north by Reliance Road. Cowpath Road cuts diagonally through the middle of the box and Kingsfield today is in the lower right portion of the box.
The Christian Benner Farm had several owners through
the early 1900s and was sold in 1928 to Harvey H. Derstine. The
property at 320 Cowpath Road today is in the name of Elwood C.
