Before our time, Chalfont was occupied by Lenni-Lenape Indians. The thirteen tribes were represented by Chief Tamanend, who signed a treaty with William Penn giving him a large portion of land in 1683. Penn, in turn, granted a large tract to the Free Society of Traders including New Britain Township and what would become Chalfont Borough. Legend has it that Chief Tamanend is buried in Chalfont near the confluence of the North and West branches of the Neshaminy Creek, but the site is unknown.
In 1869, the North Penn Railroad came through and named the station Chalfont after the village of Chalfont St. Giles in England. Most of the lovely Victorian houses gracing our streets date from the era the railroad came through.
Within minutes to Lake Galena and Doylestown Boro, Chalfont is a great place to live. Many Chalfont residents participate in the annual tri-municipal Fourth of July parade featuring residents from Chalfont, New Britain Borough and New Britain Township, which makes its way along Route 202 in Chalfont.
