In tracing the history of the Borough of Shillington, it was found that patents for portions of its area were granted by the Penns in 1733, 1735 and 1736.
A part of the Borough was known as the Three-Mile House as early as 1762.  In 1860, the community adopted the name of Shillington in honor of Samuel Shilling who made the first survey and laid out the town.
