Long Description:
Neville Township is unusual, because its entire land area sits on Neville Island in the middle of the Ohio River. One end is all factories and the other half is a residential and commercial district. There are several parks, including Veteran's Park where there's a nice memorial plaque for each major war.

The memorial is right next to a Pennsylvania Historic Marker for the Dravo Shipyards, and an interesting old cannon from colonial days recovered by Dravo during dredging operations. So, you can visit many waymarks by parking the car once and being observant.
