West Mayfield Borough was founded in 1923, so in just three years we will celebrate 100 years as a community!

We’re sure many of you fondly remember the wonderful community spirit and fun we had with the carnivals, fireworks, pet parades, veterans’ honor roll dedication, and other celebration events at our Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
