The Moore Township Land Preservation Board recently held their annual Open House at the mubicipal building. There were many parties intrerested in land preservation. Maria, from Northampton County Farmland and Dawn, from Wildlands Conservancy gave very good insight as to the preservation process. We also learned that 5 farms from Moore Township are moving forward with Land Preservation for this year, which means that they all could be preserved shortly. If you have any questions about land preservation, please come out to our monthly meetings on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at the municipal building.

We still have a small supply of 250th Anniversary Crocks and Mugs available for sale. Contact the Municipal office to purchase. Or stop at National Penn Band or Latteman's General Store to purchase.

Moore Township is a large, rural community containing 38 square miles in north-central Northampton County, Pennsylvania. The Township entirely surrounds the small Borough of Chapman Quarries. Two larger boroughs, Bath and Nazareth, are located to the south and southeast. The township has 6 different mailing addresses due to its large size; they include Bath, Nazareth, Northampton, Danielsville, Walnutport and Wind Gap.

The Moore Township Police Department and the Klecknersville Rangers Volunteer Fire Company provide 24 hour emergency services to the township. Moore Township is very rural and contains beautiful picturesque farmlands, woodlands and mountains. Framed to the north by the Blue Mountain, the Township has the famous Appalachian Trail, which runs through the Township. Agriculture and single-family residences, along with open space are the largest features that can be seen within the township. Despite the coming of the Industrial Age, Moore Township has remained largely rural in character.

In a series of meetings and questionnaires over the years, township residents said they value the physical beauty of the township, the openness of the land and the wildlife and plant life around them. Thus, in planning for the future they recognize the need to remember and preserve elements of the past.
