This is one of the recently formed townships of Beaver County. It lies north of the center of the county, being bounded on the north by Big Beaver township, on the west by Chippewa, from which it was taken in 1887, on the south by Patterson, and on the east by College Hill borough.

The township is very small, with the surface characteristics of the surrounding townships. No streams are found within its limits, but Walnut Run flows along its southern border.

This township, according to the report of the Secretary of Internal Affairs for 1900, had 180 taxables, 879 acres of cleared land, and a total value of real estate amounting to $180,708. Of the latter, $4750 represented real estate exempt from taxa­tion and $175,958 real estate taxable. Its population, as shown by the United States Census for 1900, was 491.
