Sewickley

4.8
Sewickley is a borough in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, 12mi west northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River. It is a residential suburb of Pittsburgh. The population was 3,827 at the 2010 census. The Sewickley Bridge crosses the Ohio River at Sewickley.NameSewickley is thought to be a Native American word meaning "sweet water." Historians dispute if Native Americans were referring to the Ohio River as the "sweet water" or instead to the syrup derived from a local abundance of maple trees.}Historian Charles A. Hanna suggested "Sewickley" came from Creek words for "raccoon" (sawi) and "town" (ukli). According to Hanna, the Asswikale branch of the Shawnee probably borrowed their name from the neighboring Sawokli Muscogee before the former's migration from present-day South Carolina to Pennsylvania. Contemporary accounts from noted anthropologist Frederick Webb Hodge and the Sewickley Presbyterian Church, as well as the current Sewickley Valley Historical Society concur to varying degrees with Mr. Hanna's etymology.GeographySewickley is located at 40°32.2′N 80°10.5′W (40.5390, -80.1807).According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 1.1sqmi, of which, 1.0sqmi of it is land and 0.1sqmi of it (11.11%) is water.
