The Yardley Historical Association strives to preserve one of Bucks County’s most scenic landmarks – the Old Library by Lake Afton. The Victorian-style structure was built in 1878 as the library for the community of Yardley. It served in that capacity until 1977, when the books were moved to the new public library in Lower Makefield Township.
YHA acquired the building at that time and undertook an extensive restoration. Today the Association’s collection of photographs, maps, newspapers, letters, scrapbooks, and ephemera relating to the Yardley area are housed inside.
