Founded in 1800, Quincy Township shares a municipal boundary with the Borough of Mont Alto. In 1878, through the energies of G.B. Weistling and others, the Mont Alto Railroad was extended to Waynesboro through Quincy Township. Many historic homes and buildings still stand in the township, which is host to numerous farms and orchards.

The Appalachian Trail traverses the Eastern side of the township.
