Lower Heidelberg Township has had a long and illustrious history. When driving our roadways, one encounters modern houses and businesses, then rolling fields of corn, rye, and wheat. In the south, Hains Church stands high atop a hill overlooking Wernersville in the Lebanon Valley and beyond to Cushion Peak in the South Mountains. In the north, Brownsville Road hugs the ridge affording panoramic vistas of Blue Marsh Lake and the majestic Blue Mountains in the distance. In between, old stone farmhouses, wooden barns, and deserted homesteads nestled in the hills stand as reminders of a by-gone era.
