Crescent Township was formerly part of Moon Township and is located at the edge of Allegheny County west of Pittsburgh.  In the late 1700s, recorded warrants for Fortune, Limerick and Strabane were created as riverfront properties and settled by Revolutionary War veterans who purchased land from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

In 1822, Peter Shouse settled his family in the area after serving in Ohio during the War of 1812.  A boat builder, he intended to operate a boatyard and purchased Limerick Landing on the Ohio River.  His yard provided work and jobs for those who settled in the area.  It was later incorporated as Shousetown, part of Moon Township, one of the County’s first seven townships upon incorporation in 1788.

In 1855, due to difficulty in reaching polls in other parts of Moon Township, a petition was prepared requesting the establishment of a new township, named Crescent, as it was a sliver of the top portion of Moon Township.

Today Crescent Township is known for it’s quiet tree-lined neighborhoods, beautiful recreational facilities and rural feel.
