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".
