The Doylestown Historical Society is hosting the Historic Doylestown Tour to showcase the borough’s rich historical landmarks; the perfect outing for families during the season! The walking tours are good for those of all ages with an interest in local history and with any budget, as the tours are $10 per person, however, members join in free. The tour is guided by local historian and DHS volunteer, Eric Tobin. There are 15 stops total, so get your good sneakers on, starting at the headquarters of the Society itself: 56 South Main Street at the Magill Schoolhouse. Call ahead to register at 215-345-9430, anytime between 10:00am-5:00pm, Wednesday-Saturday.
The tour includes exposés on the Fountain House, The Mercer Museum, local historic homes of note, and other landmarks!
Also, join the Historical Society for their Speaker Series. They have an array of topics available that are sure to pique your interest! Symposiums running this year are on: the historic barns of Bucks County (September 16th, 6:30pm), and the music of WWII (October 13th, 6:30pm).
To register, call ahead at least three days in advance at 215-345-9430, Wednesday-Saturday, 10:00am-3:00pm. The lectures are to be held at the Society in the Barn Gallery; they ask for a $5 donation from non-members to attend.
