King of Prussia was originally settled by Welsh immigrants, who named the town Reeseville after a wealthy family that owned most of the land. Reeseville was commonly called King of Prussia by the people, because of  the “King of Prussia Inn.” The King of Prussia Inn was a local tavern named for Frederick II, King of Prussia. The King of Prussia Inn was originally constructed as a cottage by Welsh Quakers William and Janet Rees in 1719. In 1769, the Inn was converted to a cottage, and served as a place for travelling settlers to sleep. In 1850, the post office officially named the town, “King of Prussia.”
