Welcome to the Borough of Wernersville website. We hope you find this website very useful & enjoyable to view. Almost everything you might wish to know about our Borough is contained in the website, from Council Members to local Events and more. The founding of Wernersville began in the 1850’s. After purchasing 56 acres within Lower Heidelberg Township along with brothers Henry and Thomas, William Werner took control of 52 acres. In 1855, with the assistance of surveyor Aaron Albright, plots were formed and the town bearing his name had a blueprint for development. In 1860, William would convey property to the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Co. with the stipulation that all trains would stop in Wernersville. Over the years Wernersville would continue to grow and prosper and Community Leaders were persistent in their efforts to incorporate Wernersville. On January 13, 1914 success was finally realized and they became the Borough of Wernersville.
