Honored Citizens

Solebury’s character today reflects the aspirations of residents over three centuries, and its future will be determined by our current citizenry. Solebury celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2003, and each year since then at our annual New Year’s Brunch, STHS has recognized Solebury residents, past and present, who have significantly contributed to the township with the Honored Citizens of Solebury Award.

The Society accepts nominations from the Solebury community at large. The criteria are broad:

  1. past or present Solebury resident,
  2. over 18 year of age,
  3. contributed substantially to the community, and
  4. of high moral character.

Persons nominated can include current residents or historic persons. The awards are presented at the Society’s annual New Year’s Brunch.
