Edward Froelich

Edward Froelich lived his entire life in Mountville, Pennsylvania.  Mr. Froelich worked as a tobacco businessman and owned several farms in the area.   Mr. Froelich was described by the community as a respected, compassionate, and often reserved man. Following his death at the age of 82, Mr. Froelich donated his entire estate to create a Trust providing interest proceeds that are split evenly between three organizations: the Salvation Army, the Water Street Rescue Mission and, the Mountville Welfare Association.  The Mountville Welfare Association is responsible to direct those proceeds to non-profit organizations that benefit Mountville and the surrounding community.   As result of Mr. Froelich's endowment, Froelich Park was constructed providing the athletic fields, green space, walking trail, and  swimming pool.
