Welcome To Southampton Township - Cumberland County - Pennsylvania

Southampton Township is about a one hour drive south of the Harrisburg area on Interstate 81. Our township offers an attractive rural setting within a few minutes of business, shopping and cultural areas. As our township grows, there is more than adequate space for growth as well as ample opportunities for new businesses. Our Planning Committee helps to maintain orderly development in our Township to preserve the heritage, safety, and beauty of our community.
Southampton Township is governed by Board of Supervisors and consists of three (3) elected officials, each serving a six (6) year term. The Board of Supervisors is charged with the general government of the Township to secure the health, welfare and safety of the citizens.
