Welcome to Halfmoon Township

Halfmoon Township is a rural area that has long been a major source of agricultural products. This rural atmosphere, with its low population density and proximity to the cultural attractions of Penn State University, has become appealing to people who have historically dwelled in or near a city; consequently, over the past twenty years, the population has increased dramatically, while the farming population has decreased. Still, Halfmoon Township has maintained its rural feeling, with all the associated pros and cons that come with country living.
