Hallam (pronounced /hɛləm/ hel-əm) is a borough in York County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,532 at the 2000 census.
Before 1736, all parts of Pennsylvania west of the Susquehanna River, including present-day Hallam Borough and the surrounding Hellam Township were land of the Iroquois.
In October 1736, the Proprietors of Pennsylvania received from the Five Nations deeds for the Susquehanna lands south of the Blue Mountains, including the borough and township.
