Because of this prime location, there is easy access to enjoy all the cultural events offered by both cities with very little travel, while living in an area that is suburban to the city environment. Newberry Township offers a variety of housing opportunities for all income levels. These opportunities include townhouses, single-family attached and detached homes, mobile homes, and apartments. According to the 2010 Census, the population of the Township was 15,285. The total area of the Township is 30.7 square miles; 30.4 of which is land and .3 is water.
History of Newberry Township:
Newberry Township was officially laid out by the authority of the court of Lancaster County, in 1742, previous to the erection of York County. It then included within its boundaries nearly all of Fairview Township and the eastern third of Conewago. In 1783, when its boundaries were still unchanged, it contained 33,107 acres of assesed land, had 15 grist and sawmills, and 296 dwelling houses - three more than the town of York then, and more than any other township in the county. The population at this period was 1,704, a large proportion of whom were English Quakers.
