At the end of the Revolutionary War, money (Continental Script) had depreciated in value and businesses often refused to take it. In order to pay Pennsylvania soldiers, the state issued Depreciation Certificates. The value of the certificate was based on the years of service, rank and the rate of depreciation during a soldier's time of service. The certificates could be used to buy land. Leet Township is located within the Depreciation Lands. Originally surveyed by Daniel Leet, Leet Township is named after his brother, Jonathan Leet.
