In 1951, Levittown was created in Bucks County outside of Philadelphia by builder pioneers Levitt and Sons. Dubbed the largest and “most perfectly planned” community in America, it featured single-family homes, schools, churches, shopping centers, and swimming pools. A symbol of the “American Dream,” Levittown defined the phenomenon of post–World War II suburban developments, which for the first time gave working- and middle-class families the option of affordable, detached houses outside congested urban neighborhoods. Levittown was a melting pot, attracting people from cities, rural areas, and all walks of life, including many World War II veterans with young families. Houses came fully equipped with appliances and landscaping and started at $9,000. Levittown’s superb collection of history and photographs illustrates the birth and growth of this unique area, explores the community that resulted, and features residents’ personal memories of the golden years.

About the Author:

Richard Wagner and Amy Duckett Wagner were born and raised in Levittown. Entrepreneurs whose real passion is history, they created the leading Levittown history Web site in 1997.
