boroughhallWelcome to Historic Langhorne Borough – a National Register District in PA since 1987. Through tree-lined streets, down quaint alleys and in the midst of door-yard gardens within this one-half square mile boundary, over 300 years of history is apparent. Our history and unique identity continues to be reinforced by residents with deep community pride and vision.

A village of less than a square mile surrounded by dense suburban development, Langhorne maintains its identity through foresight, hard work, and continuing vigilance. Since 1970, local government has enacted historic zoning; purchased and saved a farm within the borough boundaries; and created an Arts Council, Recreation Board, Historical Association, and a Shade Tree Commission that has planted 322 trees
