Sleepy knoll

There exists the rich history of our founding fathers here in New Hope. I grew up on the farm pictured, owned by William Penn. New Hope is located just north on the Delaware river from Washington's famous crossing.

New Hope is in Bucks County Pennsylvania. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful counties in the U.S.

New Hope at one time was a charming village of artists. They flocked to the area during the impressionists movement. There was and still is so much inspiration in the natural beauty.

The historical society offers good information.

    GORGEOUS pics of Peddlar's Village & the Millat Cuttalossa Farm! Nice page on the town you grew up and how cool is that to have lived on the farm once owned by William Penn???!

    I had no idea this was your home town. I went to Bucks County Theater many years ago to see Rocky Horror Show. Its really a small world.

    Not as interesting a sound as your home town :) But for me to multi task tonight, I'll need a lot of hope! BTW it's a strong "O" not a soft "u" ..... makes it sound less interesting, eh?

    Jill- I blame RobDavis for my attire (well, not completely. I asked him to do it). It was late, I was cheap. Jeff-

    Back for another visit to your great page and a few more votes for good measure. We are hoping to visit New Hope soon. We'll plan a weekend with our son and his wife ... hoping for warm weather and blossoms.

    My Questar telescope was built in New Hope. Such a fine instrument they build!
