Yardley Historical Association guided walking tour of downtown Yardley

A guided walking tour of downtown Yardley will be sponsored by the Yardley Historical Association on Sunday, September 21 at 2 p.m. The tour will begin at the Old Library by Lake Afton, 46 West Afton Avenue.

Come see how Yardley has changed during the last five centuries. Yardley Historical Association members Charlie Thomforde and Carol Such 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 grist mill 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.
