Solebury Township Historical Society was incorporated in 1981 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Solebury Township’s historical heritage.

The Society is headquartered in the historic  one-room schoolhouse located at the corner of Sugan and Upper York roads in Solebury Village, Bucks County, PA. It contains an extensive research library, files on the history of most of the homes built before 1900 in Solebury, partial township school records from before 1938 including grades and attendance, a large historic map of the township, many smaller maps, and much more.

In 2013 and 2015 the Society renovated the schoolhouse, including installing a new roof, repairing the windows and gutters, painting the exterior surfaces, resurfacing the floors, and updating the bookcases. The schoolhouse is open for research by appointment only. We’re flexible on hours and times for appointments. Please email us at info@soleburyhistory.org or leave voicemail at (215) 297-5091.

Our annual Ned Harrington scholarship was presented at the 2022 student awards presentation at the New Hope-Solebury school in June.  Our winning student Talia Flavin was the reciepent of our $500 scholarship.  Shown here is STHS volunteer presenter Russell Stephan and Talia.

STHS also worked with 2 graduating seniors in the high school’s APEX program at our schoolhouse helping in archiving and website projects. Much thanks to our volunteers and students.
