According to the 2000 census, this quiet, primarily residential community is home to approximately 4600 people.
Like many small communities, Telford Borough has been impacted by large-scale malls and smaller strip malls located outside the Borough.
Recently Telford Borough and her neighbor, Souderton Borough, have joined forces and formed the Souderton – Telford Main Streets Program a non-profit organization designed to encourage revitalization of both boroughs.
We look forward to positive changes, while still nurturing the small town atmosphere.
