The earliest history of Boyertown is to be found in 1720, when

John Salter became part owner of the Powell purchase. One of the

oldest known settlers was Henry Stauffer, he decided to build a

hotel at the intersection of “Philadelphia and Reading roads” today

the Boyertown Inn. Henry Boyer and his brother, Daniel, became

owners of most of the land in Boyertown.

In 1835, the community was laid out in town lots, and the first

attempted to incorporate was made in 1851. A second attempt to

incorporate was made in April, 1866, granting Boyertown a

corporate existence, named after some of its early settlers – Henry Boyer and family.

The first borough council was organized in the Union Hotel on November 19, 1866. Council members included William Fegley, Samuel Shaner, H.B. Rhoads, Phillip Gabel. The town’s first burgess was Jonathan Kepler.
