Welcome to Ellwood City, Pennsylvania!

Nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in western Pennsylvania and just north of Pittsburgh, Ellwood City is a borough in Lawrence and Beaver Counties, covering a total area of 2.4 square miles, with a population of approximately 7,800.

 

Named after one of the inventors of barbed wire, Isaac Ellwood, the borough was known for steel production during the 20th Century and has sustained many heavy industries such as steel-tube mills, steel-car works, building-stone and limestone quarries, foundries and machine shops, and coal-mining.

 

Now, the community has a thriving downtown business hub, notable large employers, and abundant outdoor recreational facilities, including Ewing Park and Stiefel Park.  With two outstanding school districts, Ellwood City Area and Riverside Beaver County Area, and access to major interstates, Ellwood City is transforming itself into a 21st Century community full of opportunities.

 

Noteworthy locals include Baseball Hall of Famer Hack Wilson, notable rock star Donnie Iris, Vietnam Medal of Honor winner Leslie H. Sabo, and Princess Ileana of Romania, who founded an Orthodox Monastery near the borough after fleeing Romania during the communist takeover.

 

The Borough of Ellwood City and its staff’s goal is to manage the efficient delivery of municipal services within the reasonable resource limits of the community.
