Plumstead Township's convenient location along the Delaware River and early thoroughfares has played a pivotal role in its development through the years. Crossroad communities and hamlets emerged around the mills, taverns, and general stores that served the area's mostly agrarian community. Plumstead Township features these communities, along with photographs of many early families of English, German, and Scottish-Irish descent. The merging of these cultures by the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and the development of new industries and specialized farming, such as dairy operations, are also highlighted.

The Plumstead Township Historic Advisory Committee was formed in 2002 to advise the township's board of supervisors on issues that affect historic resources. Through rare and previously unpublished nineteenth- and twentieth-century images provided by local organizations and residents, the committee produced this photographic history of Plumstead Township.
