Welcome to Mt. Holly Springs!

Our town is more than meets the eye by car, as you move from Carlisle, Boiling Springs, or Gettysburg and back. We offer a nice selection of affordable restaurants, ample opportunities in the borough or nearby to hike, stroll, or play, a beautiful and nationally recognized library, and an historic and renovated inn for overnight stays.

The 2019 Mt. Holly Springs Borough Water Quality Report has been issued.

The community wide brush chipping that was scheduled for this week has been postponed. We plan to reschedule in the near future and will announce the dates soon. Thank you for your patience.

Update- 3.16.2020: During a time of uncertainty and confusion- the Borough of Mount Holly Springs is offering as much clarity as we are able. Please find current information from reliable sources below so that you are prepared and able to respond to this virus in the most educated way possible. While it is pertinent to be prepared- please do not forget your friends and neighbors who may be without. It is so important that we lean on each other (metaphorically, not physically!) and care for our own. If you find that you are over prepared or got caught up in the hype at the grocery store- please consider donating to a elderly neighbor or low income family. Do not forget about the local organizations who will likely be overwhelmed by people facing a loss of income or extra mouths to feed. As always- the borough staff are able to provide information on helpful organizations if you are struggling and direct you to people who can help.
