2014 Leaf Collection

Incorporated in 1864, historic Irwin Borough is a one square mile town nestled in the foothills of the Laurel Mountains just 35 miles east of Pittsburgh.  Our thriving downtown offers businesses a chance to experience a small town flavor while in close proximity to Rt. 30 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  In contrast, our Route 30 frontage provides those businesses high traffic volume and easy access.  Our many activities, recreation facilities, and cultural events throughout the year provide an ideal atmosphere for over 4100 residents to live and work.  Norwin School District is consistently one of the top schools in the state, facilitated by a sense of community pride and spirit. Stop by sometime to experience Irwin's unique charm, and find out why we invite you to

"find your place here".

 Council voted unanimously in June 2013 to purchase the Lamp Theater, so that a $500,000 grant from the state and county would not expire.  To date, The Relight the Lamp Committee has  raised  the $150,000 match that the borough was required to release the grant money.  We need to raise just $100,000 more to reach our fundrasing goals. and another $25,000 for a small operating budget.  Click here to help
