In 1840, Penn Township was created with the boundaries as they exist today and became the 14th Township of Perry County (Click Here to learn about our history). Today over 3000 people live within Penn Township's 21.4 sq. miles of beautiful wooded areas, fields, and mountains. In October of 2000 Penn Township created PennTownship.net which has grown into a community portal to keep everyone up to date with meetings & events, provide easy access to forms & documents, and attract individuals & businesses into the community.
