It is not clear exactly when or how Reserve Township was established since public records covering that part of its history are hard to find. Nevertheless, the history of this area is said to have started with the migration of hundreds of German families traveling long distances via wagon and on foot to establish communities on a plateau that allowed them a clear view of Pittsburgh from over the Town of Allegheny and across the Allegheny River. It was on this flat hilltop that the beginnings of Reserve Township and the neighboring communities blossomed. Before Europeans settled in these parts, the area was controlled by various indigenous Native American tribes that included the Mingo, Shawnee, Lenape, and Iroquois. This initial multi-ethnic mixing set the tone for future generations to come. This can be seen in the story of Peter Chartier who is credited for establishing the first network of trading posts in and around the surrounding region in the early part of the 18th century. Chartier was of French and Shawnee Native American descent who established himself through the fur trade. He later became a Shawnee tribal chief, as well as one of the earliest voices advocating Native American civil rights.
