The Committee invites you to an Open House on Sunday, January 26th from 2-5 p.m. in Bernville Borough Hall. Hold, examine, or look through a variety of historic Bernville items from the 19th and 20th centuries. Event will not be held if weather is inclement.
Incorporated into a borough in 1851, Bernville once boasted hotels, doctors, tinsmiths, factories, bakeries, restaurants, merchandise stores, and even car dealerships. The following attached booklets will give you a perspective of what life was like in Bernville Borough many years ago:
- 1907 Old Home Week Book and Souvenir Program
- 1951 Centennial Anniversary Book
- 2007 Self-Guided Walking Tour of Main Street
These documents are also available in the History Center of the Bernville Area Community Library if you wish to read them in hard copy. (Note: the library has a copy of the 1976 Bernville Anniversary history book which offers a comprehensive history of the borough up to 1976.)
