Welcome to Topton!

About The Borough of Topton

In 1754, Berks County became incorporated. Settlers lived in "long swamp". Farms were found to be underlaid with iron ore and as many as 100 mines opened in  the area. Villages and hamlets were established and the area became known as "Longswamp" in 1761. In 1854, the Allentown Railroad Company constructed a railroad from Allentown to join the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad.

In 1859, the East Penn Railroad was extended from Reading to Allentown. On May 19th of that year, Judge George Stitzel, while inspecting the railroad, suggested to the community at the highest elevation be called Topton. In February 1876, the Borough of Topton was created. Topton, located in the northeast corner of Berks County, is surrounded by Longswamp Township, except for a small corner which is adjacent to Maxatawny Township. The population according to a 2010 census is 2,069.

Nearly $1M awarded to build path through Topton's park

The Borough of Topton is so excited to announce they were awarded a grant thanks to Governor Tom Wolf and PennDOT. Our office, along with Superintendent Andrew Potteiger are fortunate to have the expertise of Mary Himmelberger and team from Barry Isett & Associates, Inc.assisting us in the preparation, which led to this wonderful opportunity. Not only will this play a major role in our park project, creating safe routes throughout our town, but it will also help provide and secure a safe route for our children to reach the Brandywine Elementary and Brandywine Heights Intermediate & Middle Schools. ~Borough Manager Marcus Dolny
