Creation of the  Malvern Historical Commission

In 1983 the Borough Council passed Ordinance No. 83–12 creating the Malvern Historical Commission. The purpose of the commission was designated to be to “locate, name and preserve for posterity significant architectural, natural and other historic sites within the boundaries of the Borough of Malvern.”

Our ongoing work includes the logging of the many artifacts acquired by the borough over the years. We welcome residents interested in joining us in this exciting work.
