Subsequently, confusion with another community in Pennsylvania, led to altering the name to "East Berlin."

When York County was divided in 1800, East Berlin became part of the newly created Adams County.In 1877, the Berlin Branch Railroad was completed, linking the town to Berlin Junction on the Hanover Junction, Hanover and Gettysburg Railroad. The railroad operated until 1914, when the tracks were removed from East Berlin to Abbottstown. The rail line was relaid in 1916 and continued to operate as the East Berlin Railroad until 1939. The tracks were again removed in 1940.In 1879, the community was incorporated as a borough.The East Berlin Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
