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!

allergiesCommonly called hay fever or allergic rhinitis, a seasonal allergy is an allergic reaction to a trigger that is typically only present for part of the year. Spring is traditionally the main season when allergies blossom because of new growth on trees and weeds. Seasonal allergies are caused by the body’s hypersensitivity to substances in the environment. Symptoms primarily involve the membrane lining the nose, causing allergic rhinitis, or the membrane lining the eyelids and covering the whites of the eyes, causing allergic conjunctivitis. Are you experiencing allergy symptoms? Give us a try…we can help!

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles recently honored its dedicated corps of volunteers with an Appreciation Dinner on Thursday, April 23.  About 100 volunteers and their guests attended the event, which was catered by CD’s Place. As a show of their gratitude, staff acted as servers for these amazing men and women who give of their own time to help the Boyertown Museum. Seated by the picturesque Reading Diner and 1921 Sunoco Station, volunteers enjoyed photos, raffle prizes, and remarks from staff and fellow volunteers. Awards were presented to several outstanding volunteers: Matt Loizeaux, Volunteer of the Year; U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Maine Division, Volunteer Group of the Year; Ernie Derkas, Most Volunteer Hours Contributed; and Medal of Honor Recipients for Outstanding Service were Bob Dare, Pete deMauriac, Jay Fink, Frank Kemp, Ted Maurer, Dan Olsen, Fred Serfass, and Don Wilton.  Read the entire Press Release
