Picture Southampton Township as a wedge of pie, the wider crust-rim side on the west and the tip of the slice of pie to the east at Four Mile Circle. Three major highways pass through Southampton Township. An 8 mile section of Route 206 bisects the Township, extending north to south from mile marker 24 to just before mile marker 16. At the northern tip of the township, Route 38 (becoming Rt. 530 at Rt. 206) extends from west to east for a little less than three miles. In the southern portion of the township, Route 70 extends from west to east for a little over ten miles between mile markers 16 and 26 (at the Four Mile Circle).
In order to locate the “neighborhoods” listed below, we have worked first on the East side of Rt. 206 from North to South, then on the West side of Rt. 206 from North to South. As a rural community, in addition to the various “developments” there are homes and farms scattered throughout the Township between these developments.
