In 2017 Knowlton Township Historic Commission celebrated twenty years since its establishment in 1997. In addition to preserving the Ramsaysburg Historic Site, the Commission has worked with the State Office of Historic Preservation to recognize local historic districts and sites and to highlight the area’s rural agricultural history. Today Knowlton Township boasts many working farms, some held for generations by farming families dating back to the early 1800s.
