Welcome to Towamensing Township
The area known today as Towamensing Township was originally called “Saint Anthony’s Wilderness”. The word Towamensing is derived from a Lenape Indian word meaning uninhabited. Today, the township is semi-rural, with small farms interspersed between homes and woodlands. The jewel of our township is Beltzville State Park and Lake, providing residents and visitors with opportunities for year-round recreation including swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, bird-watching, and cross-country skiing.
The Township is located within the boundaries of the highly regarded Palmerton Area School District. Towamensing has an active youth sports program, and it is the first township in Carbon County to institute a policy to preserve its historic structures. You will find the township to be a dynamic location with friendly people whether you are planning a July afternoon visit or a permanent move here.

Towamensing Yankees win title
So often, big games are about seizing the moment.
Towamensing wasted little time doing just that in Game 3 of its Keystone Senior Babe Ruth championship series against Franklin. The Yankees took advantage of an opportunistic offense and a dominant pitching performance en route to a 9-0 win and their first ever title.
