Welcome

Welcome to the Borough of Pen Argyl. Pen Argyl Municipal Building is located at 11 N. Robinson Avenue, Pen Argyl, PA 18072 Pen Argyl, a town of 3600 residents, is located in Northampton County, PA, and is near Routes 33 and 80 at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain and the Appalachian Trail. Our community began in 1853 when Joseph Kellow discovered slate. Pen Argyl received its name from a Welsh word meaning “head” and from the Anglo-Saxon word “argylite” meaning slate rock. With the influx of quarrymen from Cornwall, England, the town began to grow and was incorporated in 1882 and became part of the area known as the Slate Belt. Currently there is still one slate quarry that is still in operation. The quarrymen and their families brought with them the baking of “pasties”, a beef meat pie, which was the popular food to take to work in the quarries. Pasties can still be bought today at Mr. Pasties located in Pen Argyl. Today Pen Argyl is known for its historic Dentzel carousel which is housed at Weona Park. This carousel was purchased in 1923 and is one of the few remaining Dentzel carousels that has stationary wooden animals. The carousel is open for rides during the summer park season.

  • Weona Park Study Committee
    YOUR CHANCE TO HELP PEN ARGYL BOROUGH PLAN FOR WEONA PARK’S FUTURE Pen Argyl Borough with assistance from a PA DCNR grant will be undertaking a year long process to update the Weona Park Master Site Plan. It is vitally important to Pen Argyl Borough Council to have input from a variety of sources and viewpoints. We are reaching out for citizens from a variety of demographics, the school district, business leaders, county leaders, and regional advisors to create a group of volunteers willing to be a part of a Study Committee. The goal of the Study Committee is to create a Master Site Plan that will guide the development and improvements for Weona Park for the next ten years. The Study Group will be a structured decision making resource for the planning process with a variety of opinions from different interests to reveal the most options for Weona Park. The Study Committee will be made up of fifteen (15) individuals who will meet once a month beginning in January 2017. There will also be at least three (3) public meetings outside of the Study Committee meetings. If you are interested and can commit to the time requirements of the project, please contact the Borough Manager, Robin Zmoda at 610-863-1822 or via email manager@penargylborough.com by 9/2/2016 to submit you name for consideration to be a part of this very important project.
