Berlin Township [†] in Wayne County, Pennsylvania, was formed in 1826 from the eastern portion of Dyberry Township. The name was in honor of the German city of Berlin, chosen because many of the original settlers were from that area of Europe. In 1846 the Township lost some territory due to the formation of Oregon Township, part of which came from Berlin. Samuel Smith, whose name was originally Schmidt, was probably the first settler in the Township, establishing a farm on Smith Hill, named for his family. The first post office was Ashland, established in 1844 with Isaac Doughty as postmaster.
