Our mission is to actively protect, maintain, and enhance the quality of life of residents in and around the National Historic District of Birchrunville Pennsylvania, being mindful at all times of the unique flavor of Birchrunville and its historical heritage.
The Historic Birchrunville Neighborhood Association (HBNA) was formed in 2013 -- our first effort was a successful campaign to save the Birchrunville Schoolhouse. See the links above to learn more about the HBNA.
West Vincent Township has appointed it's first Historic Commission in 2019! This is something we have been advocating for since the formation of the Association five years ago. The
Commission is charged with a number of responsibilities to advise the Township Supervisors on Historic matters.
Natural Lands has purchased Bryn Coed Farms, a 1500+ acre property, a portion of which extends to just 1/4 mile from the center of Birchrunville. This tract could have supported 700 homes if fully developed and would have a great impact on our historic village.
Natural Lands has announced the successful completion of a campaign to raise $5m to move forward wth its plans for a 500-acre nature preserve on the property. The preserve trails will be constructed in 2018 with a scheduled fall opening to the general public.
