Brecknock Township Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Brecknock Township is a very quite and rural area. The township has quite a few neighborhoods and are kid friendly. In the way of stores you have to head more into Mohnton or Shillington. There are a few restaurants which are all family owned. Overall it is a great place to start a family.
A quiet and beautiful place to live. Brecknock is a nice area close to 222 and the turnpike. It has hiking trails and beautiful scenery. The neighbors are nice and everyone looks out for eachother.
I enjoy living where I live, particularly for the people around me and their friendliness and good work ethic.
