Division of the town
The following villages were incorporated into Storkow after local council elections in 2003
(Karlslust, Neu Boston and Wolfswinkel had already been considered as part of the Storkow municipality prior to the elections)
The town of Storkow was first mentioned in 1209 by Otto IV of Brunswick and is one of the oldest towns in Brandenburg. Originally part of Lower Lusatia, it was presented as a gift to the margraves of Brandenburg by Ferdinand I of Bohemia together with neighbouring Beeskow. Since then it has remained part of Brandenburg.
Philadelphia and Neu Boston
The villages of Philadelphia and Neu Boston were named after their American counterparts by Frederick the Great in 1772.
