History

Every existing detail of the history of this area would be impossible to include here. What you will read is a compilation of information from several sources. There is a bibliography at the end of this section to allow you to continue your research if you wish.

Our entire story is not told here. Much work waits to be done to find and organize information from Upland’s rich sporting history and our sports teams through the years. The “newer histories” of the Borough since the 1960’s wait to be added here, to better complete this ever growing picture.

Here are only a few of the main points of the history, organizations and developments of Upland through the years from the mid17th century through the mid 20th century. Unfortunately, no organized history of the last forty years exists. Where possible, websites of organizations where more current information may be available are included.
