The Township is interested in individuals who are interested in Alsace Township’s history for the generations to come!

Alsace Township is in the process of having gatherings to collect historical photos of the Township to create a photo history of this wonderful Township. If you do not have any photos, that is OK too! We also need people who can provide information about the Township and its history.  Before the “old stories” are gone and photos faded, we want to capture Alsace’s wonderful history for the future!  So, if you have a piece of history to share, please join us as we create this new “History Group”.  Perhaps one of you might even come up with a good name for the group!

If you are one of these dedicated, interesting people, call the Township at 610-929-5324 and leave your name and number.  You can also email the Township at alsacetwp@comcast.net with your contact information.  We will have our first meeting when we have enough interested residents.  Bring your ideas and photos!
