Founded by William Penn in the 1680s, Bucks County maintains the integrity of its lively past. Historic sites testify to its hearty and steadfast roles - political, industrial and artistic - in the burgeoning new nation. Lessons in American heritage can be found in Bristol, Newtown, Yardley and Quakertown. During the American Revolution, General George Washington's troops embarked from Bucks County to cross the icy Delaware River and launch their attack against the Hessian troops encamped in Trenton.
To live in Bucks County today, means to be surrounded by its history, while enjoying its many more "current" offerings. Today, Bucks is known for its cultural traditions, parklands, shopping, gourmet dining, and family fun.
