Welcome to Heidelberg Township
Heidelberg Township is located in the southeast corner of Lebanon County in the Susquehanna Valley. It covers 24.2 square miles with a population of over 4,000. The Township consists of three towns, Schaefferstown, Kleinfeltersville, Reistville, and a handful of small villages.
Known primarily for developing the oldest waterworks in the United States, Heidelberg Township boasts some of the most fertile farmland in Pennsylvania. Part of this land was set aside by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and is shared with neighboring Lancaster County. That area, known as Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, consists of more than 5,000 acres that provides habitat for waterfowl, farmland and forest wildlife, and includes a 400-acre shallow water lake.
