Happy 150 Anniversary Leet Township!
On the 20th day of February 1869, a petition of diver (several) citizens of Sewickley Township, adjacent to the Ohio River and Sewickley Borough, was presented to court showing that they were laboring under many disadvantages in their connection with the back part of said Township and asking to have the new township erected out of that part of Sewickley Township lying between the river and the Ohio Township line. The new Township was to be called Leet.
After process and procedure, a vote of the citizens was taken on the 15th day of June 1869. The election results were as follows:
For Division: 88 votes
Against Division: 65 votes
Majority for Division: 23 votes
On June 26, 1869, Sewickley Township was officially divided into two townships with one known as Leet Township.
