Thousands of years after an American Indian tribe settled at the foot of a great spring, William Penn and the Quakers arrived in New Hope, Pennsylvania. It would be the beginning of an epic romance, as the borough has developed into one of the most beloved river towns in the world. During the Revolutionary War, General George Washington marched through the borough on four documented occasions. At the pinnacle of the war, ten thousand Continental Army troops crossed Coryell's Ferry as they went on to win a crucial victory at the Battle of Monmouth. But it's not just New Hope's location on the Delaware River that has made is so important. Artists of the impressionist school produced great landscape paintings there, and classic Broadway and Hollywood stars played in front of the footlights at New Hope's famous Bucks County Playhouse. In more recent years, the borough became the first in Pennsylvania to pass a comprehensive ordinance banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Take a fascinating journey focusing on one of the nation's most colorful river towns, and learn all about its diverse population, eclectic shops, and natural beauty. This is New Hope, Pennsylvania.

About the Author:

As president of the New Hope Historical Society for the past two years and member of the board of directors for six years I have been researching the history of New Hope, Pennsylvania extensively during that time period. I have had direct access to archival documents and photographs depicting New Hope's history. I have presented lectures on the history of the New Hope area numerous times to groups in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For the past eight years I have been a docent for the Parry Mansion Museum in New Hope and have conducted historic house and walking tours in the town.I have had a long time interest in American history and particularly in the history of New Hope and Bucks County. I have volunteered hundreds of hours each year over the past seven years to the New Hope Historical Society and to the Borough of New Hope Community Revitalization Committee and to the Parks and Recreation Board. I am past president of New Hope Partners in Progress, a community volunteer network that had been based in New Hope.I have been a resident of New Hope for nineteen years and a regular visitor here fro more than thirty-five years. I have traveled extensively over the past ten years to Europe and around the United States. I am retired as president of Assisted Housing Services, a consulting agency that I had founded which provided technical assistance in housing policy to government and private organizations.
