Neighbors and Friends,
In case you haven't noticed, the DELTA variant of COVID-19 is spreading rapidly across the nation. In light of this, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued an Interim Public Health Recommendation as it relates to masking and other safety precautions to help prevent the spread of disease. These include requests for mask wearing for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals in areas of substantial or high transmission of disease. Northampton County has been identified as having a high transmission of disease, and, in fact, has led the state for several days in the number of daily new cases of COVID.
To that end, until the CDC issues additional guidance, I am requesting that everyone who enters the Municipal Building and will be conducting business with our staff, to wear a mask. Additionally, all business (as much as practical) will be conducted at the Customer Service Window - with access to our administrative office restricted to an "as needed" basis only.
If you recall, earlier this year our staff was sidelined by a COVID outbreak in our borough office. We are trying to avoid a repeat performance and are asking for your help.
I know this is all frustrating for all of us. Thank you all for your support.
Mayor Moren

Welcome To Tatamy Borough

Tatamy Borough is located in Northampton County and is approximately 1/2 mile square. It is surrounded by Palmer Township to the south, Nazareth Borough to the west, Stockertown to the north, and Forks Township to the east. The 2010 census put Tatamy's population at 1203. There are just under 450 residences in the Borough. Tatamy is home to 14 businesses, 2 churches and a Masonic lodge. Borough children attend the Nazareth Area School District.

The Borough of Tatamy takes its name from Moses Tunda Tatamy, a noted Lenni Lenape Native American who owned 315 acres of land northeast of Tatamy. He was born around 1695 in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Tatamy was given his land from the Penn family for his services to them as a messenger & interpreter. In 1745 Tatamy was the first Native American baptized by David Brainerd.

The background & history of Tatamy is interwoven with the generations of the Messinger family that owned, occupied, & helped the area develop into a community. In 1771 Michael Messinger Sr. Bought 500 acres of land that includes present day Tatamy. In spring of 1893, having become a fair-sized village, citizens of the town met to discuss separation from Palmer Township & incorporate into an independent borough. They were Samuel S Lerch, Ellen C Messinger, JA Happel, Martin Werkheiser, Amzie F Titus, Samuel A Messinger, Edwin Babp, Jacob Hagley, G Frank Messinger, JM Stecker, CS Messinger, & Milton Johnson. The petition was addressed to the court on April 10, 1893. April 13, 1893 the Grand Jury recommended the petition be granted. Judge HJ Reeder granted the Decree of Incorporations on June 12, 1893.

Tatamy is a small community that values its past, strives to create a worthwhile future, making the present a place people want to be part of.

We hope that you find everything you are looking for. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
