Tylersville

Tylersville is the area around the intersection of LeSourdsville-West Chester Road and Tylersville Road in sections 29 and 30 in West Chester Township. The village was laid out in 1842 by Daniel Pocock and named after President John Tyler, then occupying the White House. A post office was there from July 15, 1889, until July 15, 1902. The area's original name is believed to have been Pug Muncy, or simply Pug. That was said to have been the name of an early African-American settler who shared water from his well with his neighbors.
