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!

B2779D72-D537-4856-9050-9B4D6BED4E33To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the founding Boyertown, Building a Better Boyertown has commissioned an original watercolor, painted by David L. Larson, a well-known artist to the Boyertown and eastern PA area.  The painting portrays and early morning scene along Philadelphia Avenue.

With the assistance of Boyertown Publishing, the painting has been reproduced into a limited edition commemorative print being offered by the BBB.  The large print, offered at $40 (approximately 21″ x 15″) will be signed and numbered by the artist.  A smaller print (approximately 8″ x 10″) will be available for $20.
