Nestled along the Ohio River in Allegheny County, located just 12 miles northwest of the city, is the wooded township of Moon.

Less than 15 minutes to Pittsburgh’s International Airport, Moon has much to offer, with corporations looking to build, business owners hoping to provide products or services to a new market, quirky well established restaurants, or people searching for the perfect community to call home.

Founded in 1788 Moon Township was the first township established in Allegheny County.  

Later, Moon became home to Pittsburgh's modern-day airport in 1951, replacing the Allegheny County Airport as the main terminal for the region. The area developed mainly due to the airport. Prior to this time, the western hills of Allegheny County consisted largely of rolling farms and small residential developments.

The township is also home to the Air Force Reserve 911th Airlift Wing, which was established in 1943. 

Since the loss of the airport terminal, which now resides just outside of the township lines, Moon has shifted its focus from airport commerce to corporate development. It has become a university hub as well, as the main campus of Robert Morris University is also located within the township.

As for homes here, you will find people who prefer woods and established developments, seeking a life away from the hustle and bustle of commercial establishments. And though Moon does have corporations within its borders, main shopping, and malls are located in townships surrounding Moon, giving residents a chance for the quite life.

So, if you are looking for a life where many of the residents seek convenience without giving in to amenities, then Moon might just be the place for you. 


There are not many suburbs of Pittsburgh that can offer convenient city access and close proximity to the airport, but Moon Township has precisely that. Search homes for sale in Moon Township now.
