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

Prior to the coming of the first settlers in 1736, Newberry Township was inhabited by Susquehannock Indians. Settlers used the Middletown Ferry to access the west bank of the River and reached what is now Newberry Township, settled throughout the Fishing Creek Valley. 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.
