Neville Island, Pennsylvania

Founded in 1901, Neville Township (also known as Neville Island) is an island on the Ohio River in Allegheny County in southwestern Pennsylvania. Home to just over 1,200 people and more than 150 businesses, the island measures 5 miles long by four-tenths of a mile wide. Industry is primarily found on the Island's east side while residential neighborhoods overlook the Ohio River on the Island’s western side.

Neville Island's location, flat topography, riverfront access and sound infrastructure make it optimal for industrial and commercial redevelopment. The recent construction of the Island Sports Complex as well as companies who have built new or modernized facilities such as New Penn Motor Express, Pittsburgh Gear, Tri-State Trailer, Overseas Packaging, and Calgon Research Lab, has helped improve the image of Neville Island.
