We Need Your Help

Historic Commission/
Historical Architectural Review Board

Due to a recent vacancy and a second vacancy to begin 1/1/2023, the Township is seeking two volunteers to serve on its combined Historic Commission/HARB. The group consists of seven or more members who are appointed to five-year terms by the Board of Supervisors. While some members have specified roles such as zoning officer or real estate broker, these two terms are both at-large positions open to any resident of the Township.

The Commission meets on the 3rd Tuesday every other month (Jan-Mar-May-Jul-Sept-Nov) at 4:00 p.m. at the Guidance Office at the Great Valley Middle School.

If you are interested in the preservation and protection of the many historically significant structures located in Charlestown Township, please submit a letter of interest to Charlestown Township, P.O. Box 507, Devault, PA 19432 or email manager@charlestown.pa.us.
