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.
