History

The Whitehall is probably named after Silas D. Prior's tavern on Brownsville Road, which was re-named White Hall in the 1850's. The building is still in existence, but is in Brentwood, Pennsylvania. In 1948, Whitehall separated from Baldwin Township, Pennsylvania to become an independent municipality.[1] According to the book A History of Whitehall Borough and its Government: An Insider's View by former mayor Edwin F. Brennan, residents of Whitehall wanted better services and zoning than they received under the jurisdiction of the township.
