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.

Remembering Jerome Guise

In the early morning hours of Monday, March 9, 2020 the Borough of Mount Holly Springs lost an incredible member of not only our community- but our family. Firefighter Jerome Guise gave the ultimate sacrifice while working selflessly to save the life of another during a fire in Boiling Springs.  People often ask what someone is willing to sacrifice as a volunteer, and yesterday it was evident. The borough stands alongside our fire department and the friends and family of Firefighter Jerome Guise as we all mourn the loss of a person who embodied what it meant to be a selfless member of our community. A fund has been set up to offer support to the Guise Family and his children. Donations can be made at F&M Trust at 3 E. First Street in Boiling Springs.

Update- 3.23.2020: Advanced Disposal, our trash hauler, has reached out to the borough to inform us of some upcoming changes being made so that they can continue to provide regular trash service. Advanced Disposal will not be taking any items outside of the toter- including bulk items. For the safety of their drivers- they request that no bags be placed alongside the toter and that all items in the TRASH toter are in a bag and not loose in the bin. Recycling service will continue as normal with items being loose inside of the recycling toter. We ask that you please comply as we continue to navigate COVID-19.


Update- 3.18.2020:  The Borough Tax Office is closed to visitors.

Tax payments can be made using the drop box or by mail with check or money order, or just the drop box when using cash with exact change. If you would like a receipt, please provide a self-addressed stamped envelope and Ms. Boise will mail a receipt to you. If you require additional assistance you can reach the tax collector at 717-385-7325.


Update- 3.17.2020: While we all are processing the ongoing issue of COVID-19, the borough has decided to cancel all public meetings through the end of March. The borough lobby will remain open for urgent needs and for medication disposal. Please consider calling the office with your questions and concerns before stopping in. If you have an urgent need but are immune compromised, please call the office so that we can work out a way to best serve you.

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.
