This picturesque community was founded in 1802 by a well educated German aristocrat, Detmar Basse, who purchased 10,000 acres of post-Revolutionary War Depreciation Lands to create a town named for his daughter, Zelie. With the main route between Pittsburgh and Erie traveling through the heart of town, Zelienople flourished as pioneers purchased lots and established homes and businesses.
