Tinicum Township remained just beyond civilization’s limits as Europeans settled on farmland in lower parts of Bucks County early in the 18th century. Inhabited by Native Americans, the land was not appealing to Europeans. Tinicum was slowly settled by the English, Scotch-Irish, and Germans until early in the 20th century, when Eastern Europeans arrived, followed by artists and writers seeking refuge from city life. The hilly, rocky, and sometimes swampy topography that discouraged early settlement has continued to limit development of the rural areas between the six villages and hamlets of the township, so that early folks returning today would recognize the landscape and many of the homesteads they established here. Through vintage photographs, Tinicum Township, Bucks County celebrates the area’s rich history.

About the Author:

Patricia Valentine Whitacre began researching Tinicum’s history and vernacular architecture 25 years ago during the restoration of her historic Tinicum farm. She has worked to preserve Tinicum Township’s historic and natural resources while serving on the township’s planning, historical, and open space commissions and as editor of the township newsletter. Twenty-year resident Richard A. Plank, a history researcher and genealogist, has served on the historical commission and the board of the Tinicum Civic Association, and he has edited the Tinicum Bulletin.
