Fountain Hill Borough
The Fountain Hill Borough Hall is located at 941 Long Street, Fountain Hill PA 18015; phone: 610-867-0301.
The Borough was incorporated in 1893 and today covers a land area of approximately three-quarters of a square mile. Tinsley Jeter (the father of Fountain Hill) purchased an estate here in 1866 (Fontainbleau). 1866 also saw the opening of the Lipps & Sutton Silk Mill. But the time the borough was incorporated, Fountain hill had grown to about 200 homes and a population of around 1,000. Noted poet, playwright and historian, Stephen Vincent Benet, was born in Fountain Hill.
