By the late 1870s, sports started to play a key role in the small boroughs of Conshohocken and West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. In 1905, the Conshohocken professional basketball team became the country's first world champions, noted in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Conshohocken's 1919 football team went undefeated, winning the eastern seaboard title, and that team's photograph hangs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Conshohocken Soap Box Derby, Little League baseball, and the Fellowship House have also provided an assortment of sporting events. Conshohocken and West Conshohocken Sports is a pictorial tribute to this region's storied sporting past.
