egun in 1920, Muhlenberg Greene Architects, Ltd. traces a lively, continuous history which mirrors, in
any decade during that period, the then-contemporary development occurring in the City of Reading
and throughout Berks County. Our past client list is rich in the names of the area's major public and
private institutions. Such local landmarks as the original Berks Heim buildings, the Medical Arts Building and
Stokesay Castle are products of the firm's historic past. We have a digital collection online showcasing some of
our archival original drawings and photographs.

Croll and Keck c. 1927

Our founder, Frederick A. Muhlenberg, FAIA, was noted for his endeavors not only in architecture, but
also in community and social services, politics, and the military. He graduated from Gettysburg College in
1908 and from the University of Pennsylvania in 1912 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture. He
later obtained a M.S. from Gettysburg in 1913 and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree from
Muhlenberg College in 1942.
Our history of support for Berks County's future continues today. We participate in projects, initiatives and
events which nurture local workforce development and provide opportunities for architectural professionals
at all stages of their career. Over our many years, numerous recent graduates and interns have worked for our
firm. We believe it is our professional responsibility to provide encouragement, mentoring, and training for
young architects to gain the broad experience and knowledge necessary for their path to licensure.
Our celebration of 100 years this year marks an unusual accomplishment for a professional design firm -
and it has been quite an unusual year for all of us! We understand things are different now and Muhlenberg
Greene Architects is here to be of service. What isn't changed is our focus on quality service to our clients, their
needs, and providing creative design solutions along with monitoring of construction activities.
As a long-established practice in Berks County, we have been taking deliberate action to prepare for growth,
and evaluating what we need to do differently now.
