Beginnings [1]

Hempfield Township was established in 1856 after James Kamerer campaigned to have land annexed from Salem, West Salem, Pymatuning and Delaware Township. Both Greenville Borough and Hempfield Township's founders had ties to Westmoreland County as they heralded from Greensburg and Hempfield Township and choose to honor these roots by naming their new homes after the Westmoreland County municipalities.
