First settled in the 1790s, Enon Valley and Little Beaver Township began as a collection of farms. Old Enon Village was located at the confluence of the northern branch of the Little Beaver River and Honey Creek. Enon was a stop on the Pittsburgh-Cleveland stage coach line.

In 1850 the mainline track of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad was laid through what s now Enon Valley. Enon Station became the maintenance station for engines and railway carriages and developed as a hub attracting businessmen who served railroad workers.
