Nescopeck Township is located near the Luzerne/Columbia County line. We are bordered by Nescopeck Borough, Hollenback, Conyngham, Black Creek, Sugarloaf and Mifflin Townships. There are approximately 34 miles of roads in our Township, which are well maintained by our small road crew who are supervised by “Fred”, who is a life long resident of our Township. We have an approximate population of 1,100, and continue to grow at a steady pace. The Township is primarily agricultural in a quiet serene setting, bordered by the Nescopeck Mountain range.
In 2001, the Township purchased the former Motor Vu Drive In Movie Theater. The existing building has been renovated into a new Municipal building with offices and meeting rooms, as well as a community room, which is available to Township organizations for their use. The lot consists of 17 acres and eventually will house a new garage for Township equipment. Future plans include an activity field and possible walking trails and picnic area.
Our Township is proud to support our Volunteer Fire Co., which in the past few years through volunteer’s efforts has constructed a large social hall, and new Fire Hall to house all of their equipment. The social hall is continuously rented year-round by local residents and surrounding communities for all types of events. Through these combined efforts by volunteers and the support of the municipality, our Volunteer Fire Co. continues to be successful.
