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.
