If you want to place information or announcements in the Moore Township column, email me at billleiner@aol.com or text me at 610-751-2745.

Did you know Moore Township was formed in 1765 and named after a representative of the then-Provincial Assembly of 1761 and 1762, John Moore? It was proposed initially to name the township Penn.

Chapman Borough is named for William Chapman - born in 1816 on the battlefield of Waterloo. He arrived in America in 1842 and began to quarry slate around Chapman.

The borough incorporated 1865 and was the company town of Chapman Slate Quarries.
