The Chalfont Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and contains many American colonial and Victorian-style houses. Several of these are former residences which are currently occupied by businesses and are concentrated near the intersection of Butler Avenue.
Originally, the Lenape Indians dwelled in present-day Chalfont. In 1683, William Penn signed a treaty with the local chief and parceled the land to the Free Society of Traders. In 1720, Simon Butler bought over 150 acres of land, including the “Village of Chalfont.” After the construction of his home and mill, Butler bought more than 400 more acres of land. Butler was a giant historical figure who acted as a legal and economic powerhouse in the area.
After his death, the land was parceled to a number of people. Since 1901, Chalfont has been named a number of things including Butler’s Mill, Kungle’s Tavern, Barndtsville, and Whitehallville. For many years, the most important building in the area was the tavern and public house, which has burnt down many times and now stands as Borghi’s Restaurant. During the Victorian era, a train-station was built which helped the community grow and brought about the construction of the many Victorian houses.
Bobby Shantz, 1952 American League Most Valuable Player, operated a popular bowling alley and diner with baseball players Joe Astroth and Shantz’s brother, Billy Shantz. The Pit-Catcher, aptly named after the combination of Bobby’s career as a baseball pitcher and Joe & Billy’s careers as catchers, was a popular meeting place for Chalfont residents of all ages. The Pit-Catcher displayed Bobby’s golden gloves, MVP trophy, and other baseball memorabilia.
Rachel Graham, a graduate of Central Bucks South High School, went on to invent Post-It Notes. She utilized a newly invented adhesive for the back of small pieces of papers. She was inspired to do so after feeling that paperclips were not satisfactory.
