Some facts about Middlesex Township:
  • North Middlesex Road was originally a Native American trail leading to Sterret’s Gap.
  • In the area of the Country Club students from the Carlisle Indian School lived and learned modern farming practices. Some attended the Middlesex one-room school.
  • A Native American village was situated on Old Stonehouse Road near Ridge Drive and what is now the township line.
  • On Wertzville Road between Mountain Road and Sunnyside Drive Native Americans passed through Sterret’s Gap, wounding a man, killing his horse and captured a woman, her two sons and daughter.
  • The Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast, located on Hickorytown Road, was part of the Underground Railroad. Rev Gen John Miller is said to be buried in a field there.
  • Drytown, located on Claremont Road, is said to have received its name because the residents would not give the soldiers water as they passed through. It was originally called Farview.

Cumberland County 9-1-1 Funding

Cumberland County Municipalities,

 

Funding for 9-1-1 in Pennsylvania is at risk. The state’s 9-1-1 surcharge, which provides funding to counties, is set to expire on Jan. 31, 2024.

Cumberland County is urging our state lawmakers to reauthorize and increase this surcharge before it’s too late.

If the surcharge is not reauthorized, the primary source of funding for 9-1-1 services will disappear, causing a nearly $10 million 9-1-1 budget to fall on county taxpayers.

Please consider sharing the attached image along with a link to our website on your social media pages and website to help get the word out to our residents.

Learn more about this issue on our website at www.cumberlandcountypa.gov/5128/9-1-1-Funding

 If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you!
