In 1764, John Frankenberger purchased and laid out eighty-five lots with streets and alleys and named it "Berlin," his home in Germany. Subsequently, confusion with another community in Pennsylvania, led to altering the name to "East Berlin." By 1797 under the new owner John Hildebrand, East Berlin had approximately one hundred houses. When York County was divided in 1800, East Berlin became part of the newly created Adams County.

In 1879, the community was incorporated as a borough.
