Bucks County Travel Guide

Doylestown

The county seat, this charming town was an important coach stop during the 18th century and today showcases Early American architecture. You can find Federal-style brick buildings on Lawyers' Row and gracious Queen Anne, Second Empire, and Italianate homes scattered about the nearby streets. A historic district of nearly 1,200 buildings, it's listed on the National Register of Historic

Places.

The locally owned shops and restaurants that are fast disappearing elsewhere in the county are hanging on bravely here.

His influence is also seen in the Mercer tiles found throughout the area.
