Mountville Community Service Foundation

The Mountville Welfare Association established this non-profit foundation to implement projects of benefit to the community that are not administered by other non-profit organizations. The Mountville Community Services Foundation, MCSF, was given funds to buy the land on the west side of Mountville to create Froelich Park, which is now home to the community swimming pool,  football field, baseball fields, and walking paths.

Edward Froelich

Edward Froelich lived his entire life in Mountville, Pennsylvania. He worked as a tobacco businessman and owned several farms in the area. He was described by the community as a respected, compassionate, and often reserved man. Following his death at the age of 82, Froelich donated his entire estate, totaling around 3.5 million dollars to be split evenly between three organizations; the Mountville Welfare Association, the Salvation Army, and the Water Street Rescue Mission to allocate funds to benefit the community. With this funding, Froelich Park was constructed with the current football and baseball fields. The community later voted for the construction of the Mountville Pool.
