Oakwood Hills Development


Oakwood Hills is the name of a 100-acre planned community enhancement project located between West Lisburn, Mill and Quail Hollow Roads in Mechanicsburg, Pa., Upper Allen Township. The land is a combination of three properties, the Rider, Musser and Mummau farms, which Messiah College began to acquire in 1997.

Existing Conditions 2.25.16

Together, these three tracts of land will make up Oakwood Hills, a skillfully planned and designed area that will extend the community, create hundreds of jobs and generate a significant amount of tax revenue for the township.
