About this title


Richland Township, located in historic Bucks County, was settled around 1710 by Welsh Quakers who used European farming methods to turn the swamp into rich farmland. Prior ro the Civil War, residents played key roles in hiding the Liberty Bell, Fries Rebellion, and the Underground Railroad. The first settlement grew around the Richland Friend’s Meeting House and was incorporated as Quakertown Borough in 1855. Another village, Richlandtown, was a center of religious and commercial life. Richland Township remained mainly agricultural during the first half of the 20th century, while Richlandtown, incorporated in 1890, continues to be a typical small town. The images in Richland Township and Richlandtown Borough introduce the reader to esteemed traditions in religion, education, agriculture, industry, and commerce.
