2024 STHS Calendar of Events

May 19th – Lumberville History Walk

Sunday, May 19th, 2024 at the Lumberville Canal Lock, 1:00 PM.

This history talk will be along the Canal towpath discussing the early times of Lumberville before and after the Delaware Canal was built through the town in 1830’s. The Gordon’s Gazetteer of 18O3 describes Lumberville as “a considerable market for lumber” hence the name. We will revisit the times, people and businesses that made Lumberville a place on the National Register of Historic Places. Parking location and more details to be posted. 

Free to current Members of Solebury Township Historical Society. This event is for members and non-members. For Tickets go to Eventbrite

Jun 9th – Show and Tell at the Schoolhouse

Sunday, June 9th, 2024 at STHS, 2pm 

Do you have an interesting piece of family history? A great story to tell? A house with an interesting history? A good ghost story? Or are you just interested in stories about Solebury and Bucks County? This is your opportunity to get together with others in the community who are intrigued by history, particularly the history of our area.

Come join us in the old schoolhouse at N. Sugan Rd and Old York Rd on Sunday afternoon, June 9th from 2pm to 4pm. We’ll be bringing together people from the area who are intrigued by history to share and learn from each other. Bring your item, book, map, deed, or whatever helps tell the story. Feel free to share your thoughts — or, just sit around and listen.
