In 1886, Telford, located in Bucks County, was incorporated as a borough. A year later, West Telford, located in Montgomery County, was incorporated as a borough. Up until 1936, then two towns operated as separate boroughs since state law in Pennsylvania prohibited borough's boundaries to extend into another county. In 1936, the law was changed and two tiny boroughs merged to form Telford Borough. Today, straddling two counties, adds to the uniqueness of Telford Borough.
There are six parks in the Borough, three of which provide ball fields. The Indian Valley Farmers' Market is held each Saturday morning at the municipal parking located in the center of the Borough. Public safety is provided by the Telford Borough Police Department, and then Telford Volunteer Fire Company provides fire protection to the Borough and surrounding area. Water and sewer service is provided by the Telford Borough Authority.
Souderton Area School District provides public education to the children within the Borough. Although there are no schools located within the Borough limits, the Indian Valley Public Library, which serves the Souderton Area School District, is situated in the Borough.
