In 1856, Ambler, Pennsylvania was the site of a great train wreck which killed 59 people and injured dozens more. At the time, it was known as one of the worst train wrecks in history. A woman named Mary Johnson Ambler, who lived in the area, walked two miles from her home every day to provide supplies and assist those who were hurt. She even turned her home into a hospital. It was after this self-sacrificing woman that Ambler took its name when the settlement was officially incorporated. The loving, caring attitude can be seen in the way that the town cares for its animals. This small town has six vets within the city limits.
