History
The Borough of Alburtis was incorporated on May 9, 1913 by the merger of two villages, Alburtis and Lock Ridge, both of which were settled in the mid-1800s.

A tract adjacent to Alburtis was purchased by the Lockridge Iron Company for the construction of iron furnaces in the late 1860s. This area, which grew into a separate village, became known as Lock Ridge.

The Lock Ridge Furnace Complex and George F. Schlicher Hotel are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Recreation
Lock Ridge Park is the predominant public park in Alburtis. Swabia Creek flows through the park and borough. The borough also includes a community center, pool, and several baseball fields.
