Roosevelt Community Center

2024 Parks & Recreation Fee Schedule

The former Rose Tree Media Roosevelt Elementary School has been transformed into the Middletown Township Roosevelt Community Center.  The building is made up of an east wing and a west wing. 

  • The east wing, built in 1921, is the permanent home of the Middletown Township Historical Society
  • The communtiy center has various classrooms for community use.  Organizations interested in using the Roosevelt Community Center should complete the Application for Facility Use.  Contact the community center HERE or at 610-565-2700 x300.
  • The west wing, built in 1952, has undergone a comprehensive update.  A portion of the wing is the new home of the Middletown Free Library.
  • Originally constructed in the 1920s as a four-room schoolhouse, the building enjoyed at least four additions to its floor plan, culminating in an entirely new building and connecting wing in the rear of the original building. It was used by Rose Tree Media School District as an elementary school until the early 1980's when it was sold for private use. Middletown seized the opportunity to purchase the property in late 2015 to preserve the building and surrounding open space for community use.

A working committee of Council members and community volunteers is continuing with plans for updating the site. The hope is to create a beautiful community space that can be enjoyed both inside and out by Middletown residents and friends. While much work is needed to plan and complete the vision, the renewal of the stately stone building is an exciting first step.
