Welcome to Dickinson Township

Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

NOTICE: The Cumberland County Commissioners have announced that the Roush Bridge over Yellow Breeches Creek located on North Dickinson School Road will be lowered to a 9 ton weight limit due to structural deficiencies.

NOTICE: The Township Road crew will be grading along several roads during the summer of 2019. The grading will generate multiple truck loads of soil and road side material. Residents may contact the Township if they wish to receive any loads of material. The site must be accessible for a heavy truck and must be near the general location of the grading work.


The Dickinson Township staff will forward reminders at the end of September to residents requiring septic pumping. To avoid a rush on the contractors in the area, the community is reminded of the requirement for every owner of an individual sewage system to have septage or other solids removed from the treatment tank at least once every three years. Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township. For more information, forms, and a list of septic haulers, please see the Sewage Enforcement section of the website.

CD copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available at the Township building.
