Welcome to Building a Better Boyertown

Building a Better Boyertown (BBB) is a non-profit organization formed in 2002. Boyertown, PA is a Main Street Community, received funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and private donors to focus on downtown revitalization.

BBB staff and volunteers develop and accomplish tasks that maintain Boyertown’s historical heritage, promote downtown Boyertown and attract people to the community. They concentrate on business recruitment and retention and on providing technical assistance and grant opportunities for property and business owners in the Main Street District to make facade improvements enhancing the town's Victorian architecture.

Overall, Boyertown's approach to revitalization is comprehensive in nature. We are always looking for fresh faces and ideas to help us achieve our goals. Come join us, and the fun!

Boyertown, PA – The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is pleased to announce a new event for the month of March—Hoods Up Weekend. Typically, the hoods on the cars and trucks on display in the Boyertown Mmuseum_logouseum gallery are left closed and the engines hidden. For Saturday and Sunday, March 21 & 22, during regular operating hours of 9:30am to 4:00pm, the hoods on over thirty vehicles will be propped open to allow visitors to view the engines underneath—everything from the early, experimental, and rare to the more common sites of the 1950s era Ford engines used in Boyertown Auto Body Works trucks. Docents will be on hand throughout both days to give visitors extra insight into the many engines on display. This event is included as part of regular admission prices. To help celebrate our first-ever Hoods Up Weekend, visitors can also purchase Boyertown Museum hooded sweatshirts available in the gift shop, which will be on special sale that weekend only.
Hoods Up Weekend is March’s Third Saturday Event. In celebration of the Boyertown Museum’s 50th Anniversary in 2015, special events are being held the third Saturday of every month.
