Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Yardley

A guided walking tour of downtown Yardley will be sponsored by the Yardley Historical Association on Sunday, May 20th at 2:00pm.

The tour will begin at the Old Library by Lake Afton, 46 W. Afton Avenue.

Come see how Yardley has changed during the last five centuries. YHA member Charlie Thomforde will lead a leisurely one-hour walk through the center of Yardley.

The town of today retains much of its original character, and it illustrates how it has changed from a single gristmill on Brock Creek to a thriving, diverse community.

The Yardleyville Bridge, the Delaware Canal, the railroad, runaway streetcars, two competing fire companies, and life in small town America will all be part of the story.

The tour will end at the Old Library by Lake Afton where light refreshments will be served. A $5 per person donation is requested.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes. For more information about the tour or other activities of the YHA, call 215-369-1479, e-mail info@yardleyhistory.org, or visit www.yardleyhistory.org.
