Welcome to West Manheim Township
West Manheim Township is located in the south west corner of York County Pennsylvania, nestled against the famous Mason-Dixon border. Our growing community of approximately 8,000 residents was founded in the mid-1700’s and officially established as a township by the Commonwealth in February of 1854 by an Act of Assembly of Pennsylvania. Originally comprised of Pennsylvania Dutch family farms, the area is now growing into a diverse community of quiet, residential neighborhoods, recreational areas, and burgeoning commercial interests. Presently, the township is made up of 19.9 square miles of land. Within the township, we have two water shed areas which are used as public water sources. West Manheim has 70 miles of road within the township which is maintained by our road crew.
