Welcome to Chalfant Borough


Chalfant Borough is nestled within the eastern suburbs of Allegheny County and is located just ten miles outside of Downtown Pittsburgh.

Chalfant, although small, is a borough with rich history dating back well over one hundred years.

Our quaint community is home to the beautiful Servicemen’s Memorial Park and ball field, several locally owned restaurants and businesses, and the landmark Parkway Steps.

Chalfant is delighted to remain a community where neighbors know one another and care about our borough.

We have recently updated our website in an effort to better support residents and visitors as they learn about the many resources available in Chalfant Borough.

Over the next few months, the website will continue to be updated with new content, so please check back frequently.

Warm Regards,

The Chalfant Borough Council
