The 10+ square miles of land that make up Bucks County’s Wrightstown Township date to the 17th century, when the first settler, John Chapman, arrived from England in 1684. The township’s boundaries as we know them today were not established until 1692. Throughout this relatively level expanse of land are historical villages, evidence of its Colonial roots and growth during the late 1800s, and modern housing, much of built since 1995 in cul de sac settings. The township’s villages are: Penns Park, located at the center of the township, Pineville, Rushland, Wycombe and Wrightstown. Penns Park and Wycombe are registered as historic villages on the National Register of Historic Places.  There are also many, many homes in Wrightstown Township with Newtown, Pa., addresses, so if you’re house-hunting here, don’t neglect a search using that place name or the 18940 ZIP code.

Pineville, on the border of Buckingham Township, still feels like a historical crossroads. A notable favorite place in the village center is the Pineville Tavern, dating to 1742 and used previously as a public gathering place, feed mill, general store, and now, restaurant and tavern. Just out the road from Pineville is bucolic Wycombe village, a place that began to flourish only in the 1890s when the Northeast Pennsylvania Railroad built a line through the area. As such, Wycombe offers a number of fine examples of late Victorian architecture, including the Wycombe Publick House, a restaurant and tavern dating to 1899. Farther out on that same train line, Rushland grew into a little center of 19th-century industry on the Mill Creek.     

Not surprisingly, most of the township’s early residents were farmers, and the area continues to have plenty of historical houses and working farms, including a number of sod farms that flourish thanks to the plains-like terrain in parts of the township.

Nearby Conveniences

So where would Wrightstown residents grocery shop and do other errands? The largest nearby town is historic Newtown, Pa. While the center of town features beautifully preserved historical streetscapes with restaurants, shops and residences, Wrightstown-area locals who need quick access to modern conveniences will find them at a shopping area just outside the center of town. In addition, the county seat of Doylestown is about 15 minutes’ drive.

Many people call Wrightstown Township home because it is convenient to Doylestown and New Jersey as well as commuter routes leading to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Others are drawn to it for its Council Rock School District. In addition, Bucks County Community College is located just over the Wrightstown Township border.
