Northampton Township's 300th Anniversary

Celebrating Northampton Township's 300th Anniversary in the Fall of 2022.

The Northampton Township Board of Supervisors has established a planning committee to celebrate the Township's incorporation in 1722.  A series of celebrations and community events are being planned in the Fall of 2022. Check back often or sign up to receive news alerts as events are finalized.  


Northampton Township was originally settled by English colonists who came with William Penn on his voyage to Pennsylvania. They named it Northampton after the town of Northamptonshire, England. Northampton Township was incorporated on December 14, 1722. Planning has begun to celebrate the 300th Anniversary in 2022. A community festival, historical tours and lectures, sports and recreation and special events will collectively honor Northampton Township’s heritage and build a stronger community. A slogan is needed to help highlight the tricentennial celebrations and activities planned and will be used in the publicity and on commemorative items. Questions?
