Glenfield Borough

Glenfield Borough, incorporated in 1883, had a population of 212 in 2020; it occupies one square mile and borders Kilbuck, Aleppo, Haysville and the Ohio River. It is the easternmost municipality in the Sewickley Valley.

Originally incorporated in 1875 from the southeastern part of Aleppo Township under the name of Camden, the name was changed to Glenfield in 1876. In the 1850s, it was the site of the Kilbuck railroad station. The town of Glenfield was destroyed when the approaches to the I-79 bridge over the Ohio River were constructed in the early 1970s.
