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 Ned Harrington scholarship award was presented in June to graduating senior Sam Hoffman by our board member Kim Madarasz. Sam’s response to STHS on receiving the award was “I will always remember this award and its meaning to me and my community. Thank you sincerely, from the bottom of my heart. I truly appreciate your generosity and kindness.”

Two more history walks were completed recently at Cuttalossa Road and in Lumberville. Both areas are unique and important to the industrialization of Solebury with grist mills, sawmills, taverns, artists and poets starting in 1750’s and both are on the National Parks Service’s list of  Historic Places.
