Welcome to

Dauphin County:

Our Mission is to provide timely and quality service to the residents of Washington Township and the surrounding communities and to promote the highest quality of life for our current and future residents.
Washington Township was established in 1846 when inhabitants in Mifflin Township asked for a division. Washington Township is a scenic area of fertile farmland, mountains and residential areas. Washington Township is home to the only remaining covered bridge (Henninger Farm) in Dauphin County. The Henninger Farm Bridge was destroyed by fire, but was rebuilt in 2003, restoring it to all of its original splendor; known for the Burr Arch design. The covered bridge is registered with the National Register of Historical Places.

Eight of the original nine one-room schools still remain standing. A significant portion of the Wiconisco Creek, known to the local residents as the Black Creek flows through the township.
