Barren Hill is a small unincorporated community in Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It was first settled in the 18th century.

The borders with nearby Lafayette Hill are unclear.


The origin of the town's name is uncertain. While probably a corruption of Barn Hill, it might refer to the sheer barren areas in the community.
