Part of Annville’s appeal is its historic district, which is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. To help preserve the historic character of downtown Annville, the Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) was established in 1996 by an ordinance of the Township, which granted the Board oversight of any construction, demolition, or alterations to the outside of properties bordering Main Street from Saylor Street in the east to the Quittapahilla Creek in the west. Property owners in this section of town are reminded that external changes to their property must be reviewed by HARB and a Certificate of Appropriateness issued by the Board of Commissioners before work may commence.
We expect you’ll find HARB to be a helpful resource. For information on the HARB review process, or to obtain an application to appear before HARB, please contact the Township Office at 717-867-4476. You may also download an application for HARB review through this HARB Application
