Venetia, Pa   Peters Township

 

Venetia and Peters Township were originally part of the territory of the Indians of the Six Nations. The Wrights were some of the first recorded settlers. The Peters name either originated with William Peters who was also known as Indian Peter, or with Peter Chartiers who was an early French fur trader. Peters Township was one of the 13 townships of Washington County formed in 1781 with the current boundaries existing since 1834.

Peters Twp history includes farming, sawmills, gristmills and the stills of the Whiskey Rebellion, as well as coal mining and the B&O Railroad. Population grew from 3,000 residents in 1950 to 21,213 in 2010. Within Peters Township's 19.5 square miles are the towns of Hackett, McMurray and Venetia. Since 1976, Peters Township has been a Home Rule community.
