About the Borough

The Borough of Myerstown was settled in the early 1730s on the banks of the Tulpehocken Creek in the heart of the fertile Lebanon Valley, and has provided residents with a peaceful lifestyle for nearly three centuries.  As the center of eastern Lebanon County, Myerstown is the focal point of a region that is far safer, with statistically less crime, than adjacent metropolitan areas.  It is the classic American small-town: walkable and community-oriented with familiar streets and friendly faces.  Additionally, its central location in the Mid-Atlantic U.S. makes for an easy day trip to Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and New York.

Within the borough or very close by is access to grocery stores, farmers’ markets, several banks, multiple health care providers, and a number of professional and personal service providers.  Also within driving distance is an assortment of family-owned restaurants and taverns with their own unique styles, offering everything from traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine to awardwinning Italian.

Myerstown has 26.64 acres of land devoted to recreation for its citizens and visitors.  These recreational areas are home to a public swimming pool, four tennis courts, a tot lot for children, three baseball diamonds, basketball and volleyball facilities, a stocked fish pond, and a large shaded picnic area with three pavilions.  With the Borough’s extensive network of sidewalks, these assets are all within walking distance of any neighborhood.

With a cost of living below the state and national average, an abundance of recreational opportunities, and a wide variety of housing options, Myerstown is the perfect place to raise a family.  This community allows its residents to enjoy all the features of a historic town while maintaining its rural charm.
