Welcome to Moon Township's new look!

Moon is a place with a little bit of everything, and our new look embraces our history and a future thats even brighter. Our perfect location between Pittsburgh, the airport, and some of the major commercial hubs in the country make Moon an ideal landing spot for residence and business alike. As the home of Robert Morris University and the nationally acclaimed, Moon Area School System, we have created a welcoming environment for students and families. Stop by for a day or spend an entire lifetime. We believe that no matter what you are looking for you can...make it moon!
