Neighborhood Guide

Moon Township is located along the Ohio River in Allegheny County. Moon is part of the Pittsburgh Metro Area and is located 12 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

Moon Township, the oldest township in Allegheny County, began as a farm-based community in 1788. Both hunting and farming kept the economy going. The Industrial Revolution arrived by 1803 with industries such as gristmills and sawmills. The various roadways and railroads contributed to the significant economic growth in the 20th century.

During World War II, the many industrial plants located within Moon and the surrounding areas became major suppliers of armor plates and munitions.

The greatest growth occurred in the 1950’s with the opening of the Greater Pittsburgh Airport.

Currently, Moon Township is home to many large companies including: FedEx Ground, Eaton Electrical Group, Nova Chemicals Inc. and Michael Baker Corporation.
