Welcome to the Borough of Bryn Athyn


Bryn Athyn is a tiny jewel tucked in suburban Montgomery County, just outside of Northeast Philadelphia. 1.9 square miles of mostly open space, Bryn Athyn is an oasis in the suburbs. Originally part of Moreland Township, in 1916 Bryn Athyn leaders petitioned the Commonwealth to become an independent community.  The Township of Moreland was then divided into Upper Moreland Township, Bryn Athyn Borough and Lower Moreland Township. Bryn Athyn became a Home Rule Municipality in 1979.  


Bryn Athyn Borough boasts two historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places: 


The Fetters Mill Historic District and

The Bryn Athyn Historic District.

4th of July Fireworks

Thank you to all who participated in the Duck Derby.  We had a lot of fun and raised funds for fireworks.

We've made it easier to contribute to the 2023 July 4th Fireworks.

Donations will be accepted through Venmo.





The next Regular meeting of Bryn Athyn Borough Council will be held in Borough Hall on Monday, January 9, 2023. 

The meeting will begin at 7:00pm.

Community Bulletin


The water line that goes across the Fetters Mill Bridge will be replaced with a line that goes under the creek bed. The contractor will use a directional drill to bore under Fetters Mill Road and the creek bed.   Alnwick Road will be closed just above the Post Office entrance during working hours. Metal plates will cover the road opening during the evening and weekends. 

Alnwick Road/Station Hill will be closed as needed for the installation of a new AquaPA water line under the Pennypack Creek. Construction will occur from 7am to 4pm. The Bryn Athyn Post Office entrance will not be affected. Fetters Mill Road will be open during construction.

Your patience is appreciated.
