This former borough is by far the oldest of the East Pennsboro Township, Pennsylvania. The merger of the former Borough with East Pennsboro Township was spearheaded by Mr. & Mrs. Leonard A. Portzline of West Fairview. The couple and other citizens were interested in the pursuit of greater cost-effectiveness, efficiency, and improvement in the delivery of local governmental services. The merger has become a model used by other communities across the state.
