Looking to buy real estate in the Murrysville area but are curious about the neighborhood and all it has to offer? We put together a brief post on the community.

Murrysville is a home rule municipality and formerly a borough in Westmoreland County. It became a home rule municipality in 1976.

The neighborhood is governed by a mayor who is elected every other year. Said mayor has a seven-member council whose members are elected every four years. The mayor has executive and administrative powers. In the mid-’70s, the Murrysville community transitioned through many forms of government and four legal name changes (including Franklin Township, Franklin Borough, Murrysville Borough and the Municipality of Murrysville). It’s been under the home rule charter since ’76.

Your children will be well-educated in Murrysville. The municipality is within the Franklin Regional School District. It operates five schools and boasts a high school graduation rate of 99.3 percent. The national average for public high schools is only 82 percent.

Notable people who grew up in Murrysville include actress Julie Benz, Robert Moose, former Pirates pitches from 1967 through ’76, Candace Otto, Miss PA 2003 and Dance Moms dancer Maddie Ziegler.

Murrysville is a cozy, welcoming town. Since 1933, it has had a tree sign spelling out the word “Murrysville.” The trees were landscaped by the local Boy Scout troop. In 1947 the sign was featured in Ripley’s Believe it or Not as the world’s biggest arboreal sign. Unfortunately it no longer holds that title.
