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.

The next Regular meeting of Bryn Athyn Borough Council will be held in Borough Hall on Monday, October 3, 2022. 

The meeting will begin at 7:00pm.



The Alnwick Grove Historical Society has placed a plaque at the location of Alnwick Grove where picnickers gathered in the 1870's to escape the summer heat in               Philadelphia and eventually led to the settlement of Bryn Athyn.

The Historical Society will introduce the plaque at a ceremony on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 2:00pm.

The Duck Race will take place at 3:00pm.   All proceeds will benefit the annual July 4th Fireworks event in Bryn Athyn.  No tax dollars are used for the fireworks event.  We rely 100% on donations to fund fireworks.

Come out to Alnwick Grove, enjoy the Duck Race along with delicious food at the All Aboard Café!
