Welcome to the Borough of Nazareth website. The borough is named for the Biblical town of Nazareth. William Penn bequeathed this land to his daughter, Letitia, who under colonial law would have had to pay a single red rose each June 24, if so demanded by the trustees. People in Nazareth celebrate this every year on June 11 and 12 by various organizations selling single red roses throughout the town.

The Borough of Nazareth, founded in 1740 by Moravian settlers, is a quaint and charming community situated in central Northampton County just four miles north of Bethlehem and seven miles northwest of Easton. Nazareth can boast of quiet and attractive neighborhoods and easy living and its 5,746 residents enjoy the Borough's great parks, heralded school system, convenient downtown and one hour access to New York City and Philadelphia. Historically, Nazareth was an industrial town with the production of cement, textiles, yarn and fabricated steel at its heart but the town will always be linked with its best known and most popular product, the Martin Guitar.



Thousands of the prized guitars are still produced each year for worldwide distribution and each summer, the town proudly hosts the annual "Martin On Main Street Festival". Serviced by its own Police Department and Vigilance Hose Volunteer Fire Company, Nazareth offers a unique community spirit which manifests itself in several traditional events like Nazareth Day, The Block Party, parades and holiday tours. The Borough can be accessed by Routes 191 which passes through the heart of the downtown and Route 33 which skirts the Borough's eastern borders.
