"Orwigsburg was the original county seat of Schuylkill County. The first settlement in Orwigsburg was made by Peter Orwig in 1773. He plotted the site in 1796 and named it Orwigsburg in honor of his grandfather, George Gottfried Orwig, who emigrated from Germany in 1747. Orwigsburg became the county seat in 1811 and was incorporated in 1823."
