Elverson Borough [1]

Elverson Borough is one of three more densely developed areas (also including Honey Brook Borough and Morgantown) within a setting that is largely rural with a strong agricultural component. Surrounding townships include Honey Brook, West Nantmeal, and East Nantmeal in Chester County, Caernarvon and Robeson in Berks County, and Caernarvon Township in Lancaster County. As a whole, the area has experienced strong growth in recent decades, a trend that is likely to continue. The Borough of New Morgan, located approximately four miles to the west in Berks County, contains significant potential for future growth, although plans for development have largely been unrealized over the past decade.

The Borough is well connected to major highway corridors. PA Route 23 (Main Street) is a heavily travelled road that runs east-west through the Borough while PA Route 82 (Chestnut Street) travels north-south. PA Route 401 runs east-west along the southern portion of the Borough. These corridors link Elverson to Phoenixville, Coatesville, and Malvern in Chester County and to Lancaster to the west. The Pennsylvania Turnpike, Interstate 176, and PA Route 10 serve a broader area for movement of people and goods, linking Elverson to points along the Turnpike, Reading, and southwestern Chester County.

In addition to the Borough's own Livingood Park and National Register Historic District, there are several significant heritage and recreational attractions within easy traveling distance for Borough residents. State Game Lands Number 43 is located immediately to the northeast. Joanna Furnace, French Creek State Park, Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site and Warwick County Park are all located within ten miles. Recreation attractions in the broader area include Marsh Creek State Park and two Chester County parks (Springton Manor Farm and Hibernia County Park). Elverson is situated in the southern portion of the Hopewell Big Woods, which encompasses portions of Berks, Montgomery, and Chester counties. The Hopewell Big Woods is the largest unbroken forest area in southeastern Pennsylvania, and a critical natural area.

Community facilities within or in close proximity to Elverson include the St. Joseph Health Network Urgent and Outpatient Care, Twin Valley Fire Company, and the Twin Valley schools. Morgantown Aero Corp Airport is approximately two miles west of Elverson. Other community facilities are located further from Elverson, including police service and hospitals.
