STHS Highlights and Future Endeavors
The Ned Harrington Scholarship was awarded to New Hope-Solebury High School student, Nicholas Garibaldi, Class of 2020. Nick will be attending New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study this fall that will allow him to pursue multiple interests including history. Congratulations and Best Wishes to Nick!
“Greetings from Solebury Township” — With the reduction in tourism, look for our upcoming virtual sightseeing exhibit of vintage postcards on our website. Grouped by location — Carversville, Lumberville, and Solebury Village – current photos will be included to give a “then and now” perspective.
The STHS is in desperate need for additional volunteers!
We are looking for help with our financial planning, membership, communications and stewardship. Volunteering with a congenial and proactive group of neighbors will be a rewarding experience. So give us a call or send an email today telling us how you can contribute. We all have the same goal, preserving the heritage of Solebury Township!
For additional information:
Phone: 215-297-5091 Leave a message and someone will get back to you. The office is not
open every day, but the phone is checked frequently.
Many thanks, and please take care!
Event postponed, please watch for rescheduling date.
The 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 on Wednesday afternoons for visitors. Plan to visit between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
