After months of sorting and cataloging historical records of
Chalfont Borough, we are happy to announce the availability of
Chalfont Borough Archives, 1901 - 1980 to the general public.
A Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission grant was awarded to the borough in 2006 for the preservation of historical documents and records. Borough staff and volunteers, primarily Mayor Marilyn J. Becker, spent many hours sorting and cataloging material stored at 500 North Main Street. Through the grant monies received, we were able to purchase acid free, archive quality storage materials and install archive shelving in the historical bank vault in Borough Hall. This is where the materials have found a home.
A list of the archived material is available by clicking on the link to Chalfont Borough Archives, 1901 - 1980. To request access to particular information, please download the Archive Request Form and return it to Borough Hall, attention: Borough Secretary. Due to the important historical nature of the archived material, public access is available by appointment, for one hour intervals, during the normal business hours of the borough office. You may make an appointment by contacting the Borough Secretary at 215-822-7295. Please note that archived personnel records and related documents are not available to the public.
