Bucks County Travel Guide


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.
