The Economy Borough Civic Club had its beginning in 1949 when a group of men started a waterline committee for the purpose of getting water from Harmony Township to Ridge Road. After that project was completed, they formed the Ridge Road Civic Club in 1953.

The club was organized on a non-profit basis, incorporated and granted a charter. The women formed an auxiliary and later joined the men to form one club. In 1957, the club bought the Herman Ludwig farm on Ridge Road Extension, and donated a parcel of land to the Economy Volunteer Fire Department for a firehouse. In May of 1962, the farm house was torn down.

As membership increased, the name was changed to the Economy Borough Civic Club. The club was active in getting the water line extended to Conway-Wallrose Road and getting Ridge Road improved. The membership was also involved in community efforts like the 150th Anniversary celebration and several other local improvement and beautification projects.

They met in a small building on the farm that was remodeled by the members. Due to the size and deterioration of the building, the club now meets at various locations throughout the year to discuss current and future plans. Presently they are undergoing a project to repair the old barn and possibly later renovating the small clubhouse.
