Located 13 miles northwest of Pittsburgh and within 15 minutes of Pittsburgh International Airport, Sewickley is a town rich in history with an identity reminiscent of the most refined New England towns and villages. The Sewickley area is comprised of eleven communities which include the borough of Sewickley, Sewickley Heights, Sewickley Hills, Edgeworth, Osborne, Aleppo, Haysville, Leet Township, Leetsdale, Bell Acres and Glenfield. Some sections of Ohio Township and Franklin Park are also considered part of this community and share the 15143 and 15056 zip codes.
With the roots of this town starting as the trail to the west along the Ohio River, Sewickley became a refuge for the industrial barons of the mid-to-late 19th Century, an escape from the noise, smoke and confusion of the mills and factories of Pittsburgh. They were responsible for the majority of the world-renowned Georgian and Victorian homes and estates that distinguish the area.
That feeling of tradition continues today. Sewickley exemplifies the peace and solitude of a quaint, mature and established business district along with a myriad of charming neighborhoods enriched by the blue-ribbon Quaker Valley School District and the first-class medical, educational, recreational and cultural facilities that also serve many of the other communities in the Ohio River Valley. The prestigious Sewickley Academy offers a private, high-quality pre-K-12 education to the surrounding community.
