Audubon lies on the north side of the Schuylkill River across from Valley Forge National Historical Park, and is situated about 5 miles (8.0 km) away from the King of Prussia Mall, one of the largest malls in the United States. Local landmarks include:

Mill Grove : Built in 1762 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Mill Grove was the first American home of the renowned artist, author and naturalist John James Audubon. Between 1803 and 1806 Mill Grove and its surrounding fields and woodlands first inspired young Audubon's passion for painting and drawing birds. Today, the 175-acre (0.71 km2) estate remains largely as Audubon found it. It serves as an educational center of the National Audubon Society, dedicated to connecting people with nature. A haven for birds and wildlife, the property boasts more than 7 miles (11 km) of trails and stunning views of Perkiomen Creek. The historic three-story stone farmhouse contains a museum displaying original Audubon prints, oil painting, and Audubon memorabilia.

Several years later, discouraged by disputes with partners and the failure of the lead mine on the property, Audubon sold Mill Grove and moved to Kentucky to seek his fortune as a frontier merchant. Mill Grove then became the property of Samuel Wetherill of Philadelphia who purchased the property in 1813. It remained in the family until Herbert J. Wetherill sold it in 1951 to Montgomery County. In April 2003 theNational Audubon Society and Montgomery County signed an agreement creating the Mill Grove Audubon Center. The center is managed by Audubon Pennsylvania, the state office of the National Audubon Society.

Walnut Hill (Pawlings Farm): The land known as the Perkiomen Peninsula, and particularly the Pawling Farm, played an essential role in the Valley Forge winter encampment of 1777–1778. It provided strategic protection for the camp; it was the site of the newly organized Commissary function that saved the Continental Army from starvation; and it was the ultimate site of the encampment itself before the army marched on to victory at Monmouth. Today the peninsula is a mix of habitats—open meadow, riparian and upland forest, wetlands and extensive vernal ponds. This is why the Pawling Farm lands provide the best wildlife habitat in the entire 3,500-acre (14 km2) park. The park’s unpaved River Trail runs from the Pawling Bridge to Betzwood, and is a favorite of local residents. The paved Schuylkill River Trail runs along the northern edge of the Pawling Farm. Located on the south side of Apple Valley Lane is a reconstructed stone wall (commissioned by David Lapps and Eileen Moran) from one of the original structures that some of the troops stayed in during the winter of 1777-1778.

The Schuylkill River Trail: 13.5-mile (21.7 km) multiuse trail that runs from Philadelphia to Oaks. It was built on the Pennsylvania Railroadright-of-way and parallels the scenic Schuylkill River as it passes through various townships and boroughs. The trail is a popular destination for biking, rollerblading, jogging, and walking. It is recognized as a National Recreation Trail by the U.S. Department of Interior’s National Trails System. Trailheads include Betzwood Park (parking/restrooms), Pawlings Road (parking), Mill Grove, and the Upper Providence Park (parking/restrooms) off Rt. 422 and Egypt Road in Oaks.

Perkiomen Trail: The 19-mile (31 km) scenic Perkiomen Trail runs through the Perkiomen Creek Valley from its junction with the Schuylkill River Trail at Oaks, Upper Providence Township, to Green Lane Park, the largest county park. Most of the trail is a 10-foot (3.0 m)-wide cinder or stone aggregate (unpaved) surface with grass shoulders. Selected sections are paved where deemed appropriate. The trail is popular with walkers, joggers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, and equestrians.

The trail, developed on a former railroad bed, follows Perkiomen Creek and connects three county parks (Lower Perkiomen Valley Park, Central Perkiomen Valley Park, and Green Lane Park) and two county historic sites (Mill Grove at Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and Pennypacker Mills). It passes directly through ten municipalities, making connections to numerous municipal parks and open spaces along the scenic waterway. It provides access to Valley Forge National Historical Park via its connection to the Schuylkill River Trail extension.

Audubon Elementary School [2]: Located roughly in the center of Audubon, Audubon Elementary school was decommissioned from the late 1980s until the mid-1990s. During that interim period, it housed the town library and a YMCA. In the mid-1990s, it underwent extensive renovation and was reopened to coincide with a large housing boom in the area. On the corner of its property, there is a tree that is at least two centuries old. Currently, the school is part of the Methacton School District.

The Club at Shannondell (formerly General Washington Golf and Swim Club): Leased from Lower Providence Township by Shannondell Retirement Services around the year 2000, this 18-hole championship golf course features 6,122 yards (5,598 m) of golf from the tips for a par of 70. The course rating is 69.9, and it has a slope rating of 121 on ryegrass. General Washington golf course opened in 1965. The facility also includes a family-oriented swim club and upscale family-dining restaurant.

Audubon Inn: This large colonial-era structure is located at the corner of Park Avenue and Egypt Roads, and its proposed demolition was a subject of dispute in a 2005 township rezoning hearing. Currently it houses a law firm, though in the past it has served as a restaurant and inn. The Audubon Inn was bought by a local law firm, and the property behind it bought by CVS.

Bud's Bar: Originally the Shannonville Hotel, and having served for some time as the post office for the community, it is located on the opposite corner as the Audubon Inn and likely built around the same time. Bud's Bar closed in 2007.

Hobby Hut Raceway: An off-road radio controlled racing facility that is renowned for being one of the most technically challenging in the region. It is the site of the second race of the yearly Tri-County Summer Sizzler racing series.

MOS-Commodore Semiconductor

 

 


MOS Technology operated a semiconductor design and fabrication business, operating from 1969 to 1976. Purchased by Commodore Business Machines (CBM) in 1976, the facility continued to manufacture chips under the MOS name. Eventually, the business division was renamed the Commodore Semiconductor Group (CSG). Commodore shut down operations at the site in 1992 and went bankrupt in 1994. A company, GMT Microelectronics, purchased the facility in 1995, and manufactured CMOS and other circuitry until EPA shut down the site in 2001. The site was put on EPA's National Priorities List in 1989. Leaks from underground hazardous waste storage tank caused the local groundwater to become contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE) and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
