Upper Moreland Township Montgomery County Pennsylvania

Upper Moreland Township
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

Upper Moreland Township is in Montgomery County Pennsylvania. Before the American Revolution Montgomery County was a part of Philadelphia County.

The township seal makes effective use of heraldry in its own American way.

The key American difference is the lack of a knight's helmet. Instead a smaller shield in the chief seems to take its place.
