Welcome to the website of Greene Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, a Township of the Second Class located on the south side of the Ohio River, where it leaves Pennsylvania and splits the adjacent states of West Virginia and Ohio.
With the Ohio River as our northern boundary, and the state of West Virginia to our west, we have the distinction of having the three states of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania meeting at our northwest “corner”.
The northern border of the township is the Ohio River and Georgetown borough, which is located on the river. The township is bounded on the east by Raccoon Township and by the borough of Shippingport, on the south by Hanover Township, and on the west by Hancock County, West Virginia. The borough of Hookstown, though a separate municipality, is located within Greene Township; Hookstown provides the mailing address for the township. Greene Township is a largely rural area in the southwestern part of Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 26.2 square miles (67.9 km2), of which 25.0 square miles (64.8 km2) is land and 1.2 square miles (3.1 km2), or 4.56%, is water. According to the 2010 U,S, Census, the Population was 2,356. Although Agriculture is the main industry, many other diverse businesses are located in the township. The Township’s largest employer is the South Side School District. Greene Township is one of 6 municipalities that make up the South Side Area School District.
Many residents are employed at such nearby locations as First Energy’s Beaver Valley Nuclear and Bruce Mansfield Power Plants and National Gypsum, all in adjacent Shippingport Borough. Other residents find employment at the Beaver Medical Center, Beaver Valley and Robinson Town Centre Malls, and Pittsburgh International Airport, all within 30 minutes of the Township.
The main roads are US Rt. 30 which traverses East To West, St. Rt 168 traverses South to North, and St. Rt. 151 traverses East from Rt. 30. Our main commercial corridor is the intersection of U.S. Route 30 with State Route 168.
Also located in Greene Township, is the Hookstown Grange, which sponsors the yearly Hookstown Fair and the Southside Historical Village.
Our Township has created Mill Creek Community Park, located at 1128 State Route 168, Hookstown. With the help of numerous grants and many willing volunteers, we have 3 ballfields, 2 picnic pavilions, a playground, horseshoe court, walking track, Veterans Monument, indoor restrooms and concession stand.
Open Space is preserved across busy Route 168 on another Township property, purchased with the assistance of a DCNR grant. A walking/cross-country skiing trail with unique features has been constructed as an Eagle Scout project.
