Hallam properties include large parcels of land, farms, ranches and single family homes to fit every budget. Hallam borough is in Hellam Township, in the eastern part of York County. Hellam Township was named after Hallamshire, a township in England where Samuel Blunston, the magistrate of Lancaster County who granted permits for west of the Susquehanna, was born. Before white settlers arrived, Hallam was a favorite spot for the Iroquois and Susquehannock Indian tribes. Specimens of Indian life, such as stone arrowheads, spear points, axes, hatchets and utensils used by the Indians can still be found today along the Susquehanna River, streams, and other places in the Township. The difference in spelling the place name can be a source of confusion. Hallam borough uses the English spelling, since it was settled by the English, while Hellam Township uses the German spelling, as German farmers helped settle the area. Hallam is the site of the grave of the Unknown Confederate Soldier, the Codorus Furnace, and the Haines shoe House. Students are served by the Eastern York School District.
