The History

Chartiers Township has such a rich history rooted in the conflict that shaped the nation. From the township’s first settler in 1774, Colonel James Allison, to the coal industry that kept the town thriving, you can see much of this history in buildings like the John White House. You can even explore beyond Chartiers' history with the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum which came to town in 1954 and used its nearly 50 cars to draw in 30,000 visitors yearly.

Community Events

Every summer, children ages 5 through 12 can take part in the Chartiers Summer Playground. The daily summer program at the Arnold Park Pavilion engages children with games, field trips, arts & crafts, music, and so much more. The township also hosts monthly gatherings at the Chartiers Community Center to get everyone involved in community events. Chartiers Township is also home to the Washington County Fairgrounds, which hosted the annual Washington County Fair for many years.

Parks and Recreation

Arnold Park is the township’s primary park. Its 31 acres offer locals a multipurpose field, sand volleyball court, and horseshoe pits. The other park in Chartiers Township is the 15-acre Allison Parkette, which features baseball diamonds and a designated play area. Though there are only two, the township takes its parks seriously. Monthly, the Friends of Chartiers Parks fundraises to keep them well-manicured and open.


Students in Chartiers Township will attend the Chartiers-Houston School District.
