Days in Malvern
A Brief History
In 1806, the villages of Troy and Lodi were settled; they later combined and were renamed Malvern. The Village of Malvern was incorporated in 1869. Located in Brown Township, the oldest and largest township in Carroll County, Malvern is the second largest Village in the County. Malvern was a center for the clay and brick industry in the early 1900's. Many immigrants were attracted to the area to work in the plants. Malvern produced brick and other products that were used to build streets and communities throughout the U.S. While it is not technically part of the Village of Malvern, Lake Mohawk is an important part of our larger community. Twenty-three hundred acres of farmland were bought in 1962 and developed into a 507 acre scenic lake with 1700 surrounding lots for housing. Lake Mohawk is a private development which is now home to over 900 families. The greater Malvern area is a vibrant and active community, rich in businesses, citizens and values.
