Forward Township was established in 1854 out of territory embraced in the original townships of Connoquenessing and Middlesex. The Township is named after the Honorable Walter Forward who was a judge in Allegheny County, PA., a member of the 17th U.S. Congress and also the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury from 1841 to 1843.

The Forward Township Road Department received the Cooperator of the year award for participating in the Dirt & Graven and Low Volume Roads Program. They have taken steps to reduce sediment pollution from entering the streams of Butler County. By seeing both the environmental and economic benefits, they have carried these practices to other roads in their township.
