Fellsburg is a census-designated place[1] located in Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County in the state of Pennsylvania. As of the 2010 census[2] the population was 1,180 residents. It was named after John Fell, who received the land from George Washington, for helping out the army by making boots and cloths, as well as giving them shelter during the winter months. Fell moved to the area and established a small town with a church, store, school, and a few houses. He is now buried inside the church for memorial.
