Welcome To Washington Township

Washington Township Washington Township is a pleasant rural community with a variety of features including open space, rolling hills, farms, housing developments, streams, and a mixture of restaurants, stores and services. Most residents find our Township to be a quiet and relaxing place to live. Our community prides itself on its ability to work well together and with others to provide a safe and comfortable life for you and your family.

Common to rural life, there are some characteristics you will also find. For example, our Township is supported by a Volunteer Fire Company and a Volunteer Rescue Squad. Also, the majority of the Township is serviced by private wells and on-lot septic systems. In addition, it is not uncommon to find large and slow moving vehicles such as tractors on the open road, and the smells and sounds associated with a working farm. And finally, we have a high volume of wild animals such as bear, deer, coyotes, skunks, fox, and raccoons.

Our website is designed to help new and current area residents find valuable information and resources regarding our community. If you have any questions or comments regarding the website, or need additional assistance finding information, please contact the office at (610) 588-1524. We will be happy to assist you.
