The Township of Crescent was created in 1855. It was given the name Crescent because it was formed from a portion of Moon Township. With a population of around 2,726, Residents. 1,160 houses and having a total area of 2.1 square miles, Crescent Township maintains a small town feel. Labeled the “Gateway to Allegheny County” on its entrance from the Borough of South Heights, Crescent Township serves as a small community to its residents who desire to have that hometown feel while still being close to the City.
Over the past year the Township has started to see many changes and with the continued hard work of its employees and residents, we hope to see the Township of Crescent flourish into an even better place to call home.
Moon Township will be holding an electronic recycling event on August 1, 2015. The event will take place at their municipal building located at 1700 Beaver Grade Road from 10am - 2pm. All are welcome to participate in this event.
