Our History

Ferguson Township was formed in 1801 and was named for Thomas Ferguson, an early settler who operated a mill in the Village of Pine Grove Mills at the base of Tussey Mountain. In the early 19th century, a number of other small settlements were established, including Gatesburg, an iron ore producing center; Pattonville, which later merged with Pine Grove Mills; Rock Springs, settled by David Mitchell in 1812, and Richard Bailey's Baileyville.

Home Rule Status

Ferguson Township is known as a home rule municipality. Home rule enables voters to adopt a home rule charter that acts as the city's basic governing document over local issues. The goal of municipal home rule is to help local control and minimize state intervention into municipal affairs.

Location

Ferguson Township is located in the southwestern corner of Centre County and contains approximately 50 square miles of land area. Despite being home to more than 19,000 residents, a majority of the municipality is undeveloped. The Township is bordered on the south and west by Huntingdon County. Most of the Township is located in the valley floor between the Tussey Mountain and Skytop Ridges.
