Knox Township is known for having one of the county’s first schools, which was constructed in 1806. One of the most famous historic sites in the township is Middle Sandy Evangelical Presbyterian Church, which remains one of the county’s oldest churches.
Knox Township Fire Protection is provided through the joint cooperation of the Homeworth Volunteer Fire Company and the North Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department.
On April 12, 1930 the first organized fire department in the township was implemented in Homeworth with Harry Heffner as Chief. Memberships in the department were sold to villagers in order to provide the $3,100 needed to fund the purchase of a Howe Pumper – which they still own today.
