Doylestown is a small borough located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It’s situated 14 miles west of the Delaware River and a couple miles west of Peace Valley Park. It currently serves as the county seat for Bucks County since being approved by the General Assembly in 1813.
The land was inhabited by Lenape people until William Doyle was given the right to build a tavern on the corner of what is now Main St. and State St. in the mid-1700s. The small village started to grow in the early-1800s and its strategic location allowed it to flourish throughout the 1900s.
The center of Doylestown sits right where Main Street, State Street, and Oakland Avenue collide. The land stretches out to the Doylestown Bypass to the west and Route 202 to the east. It’s located about 40 miles from Center City, Philadelphia and 25 miles from Trenton, NJ.
Some of the most exciting things to do and see in the Doylestown community include Fonthill Castle, the Doylestown Country Club, the Michener Art Museum, Burpee Park, Peace Valley Park, the Doylestown Historical Society, Pugh Dungan House, the Fountain House, and more.
