Historic Fallsington

Nestled in the southeastern corner of Pennsylvania, just north of Philadelphia, at the falls of the Delaware River, the Village had retained its 18th Century character as a seat of Quaker living, worship, and commerce, until the early 1950’s.  Then development in the adjacent Levittown and Fairless Hills threatened to end that forever. Historic Fallsington, Inc. was formed to protect the heritage of the Village.

The three hundred year old Village of Fallsington today represents an enduring Quaker community and an architectural heritage that is uniquely American. Today, Meetinghouse Square appears as it did almost 200 years ago. Historic meeting houses and commercial and residential buildings have been restored and intrusive development has been stayed. At the same time, Historic Fallsington is part of the fabric of Lower Bucks County. Fallsington is a living community of 17th through 20th century homes of varying architectural styles and a small number of other buildings that represents the march of time through the last two hundred years. Fallsington is important today not because it was the site of world-shaking events or the home of famous people but because it has survived to tell its story.

We urge you to join us. Stand in the Square and gaze at a vista largely unchanged for scores of years.
