QUAKERTOWN, PA
In 1715, the Quakers had journeyed across the Atlantic from Wales, and settled here in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, fifty miles north of Philadelphia. Quakertown was officially named in 1855, and began to prosper at that time, due to the arrival of the North Pennsylvania Railroad. Speaking of railroad, the Underground Railroad also found a stop here in Quakertown. Stoves, wheel spokes, boots, shoes, harnesses, and cigars were all manufactured here in this town which grew very quickly commercially. One special note about Quakertown, is the fact that the borough maintains its own water and sewage system, as well as administering the electrical supply of the town. Another note, is that during the American Revolution, the Liberty Bell was moved to Quakertown, and hidden here for safekeeping. Come and experience the colonial charm which is still so evident here, whether it’s in the shops and streets, or in the warm coziness of your room at a bed and breakfast inn. You’ll be happy you made this choice, rather than conventional lodging while on your trip. Time to see some destinations worth highlighting: the Canal Museum, the Apothecary Museum and the George Taylor House and park hold that historical spirit. Don’t miss the grandeur of the Fonthill Museum, and just for fun—how about a stop at the Crayola Factory?
