  • Description

    In the heart of Bucks County is Buckingham Township. Steeped in history, this region is prized for its natural beauty and quality of life. Buckingham Township offers a wide variety of properties for sale.

    Prior to European settlement of the area, the Lenni Lenape Native Americans inhabited what would become Buckingham. Via land grants from William Penn, Welsh and English settlers were the first Europeans to make the region their home. Fertile soil made this section of Bucks County particularly fruitful. Agriculture remains an important part of Buckingham’s economy and character with farms that have operated for hundreds of years. During the American Revolution, Bogart’s Tavern in Buckingham Village hosted some of George Washington’s closest officers. Portions of the plans for Washington’s famous Christmas Day crossing of the Delaware River were composed at the establishment.

    As folks moved into Buckingham in the 1950s, the region began to transform from agrarian farm properties into its current suburban form. Some farms became neighborhoods, old gravel roads were paved, and the future of the township became unsure. The paradox was clear: The influx of folks to Buckingham jeopardized the very appeal of the township. The 1990s brought a wave of legislation that would ultimately ensure the preservation of open land and natural features of the township. Residents also have the option to sell the development rights of their properties to the township in order to ensure long-term preservation. Many have done so and thus have preserved hundreds of acres.

    Though the township is centered by the Village of Buckingham, there are also a number of villages/communities within the township’s boundaries–Lahaska, Wycombe, Forest Grove, Mechanicsville, Furlong and Holicong, to name a few. From centuries-old stone homes to new-contruction townhouses and large luxury homes, choice abounds when it comes to finding a home in Buckingham.

    Consider buying in Buckingham if you work or need to be close to the Bucks County seat of Doylestown. The area also provides easy access to areas in the eastern part of Montgomery County, such as Montgomeryville or Fort Washington.

    Another reason for Buckingham’s desirability: the Central Bucks School District. Many residents move to the area specifically to enroll their children in this highly regarded educational system. Central Bucks has 15 elementary schools, five middle schools and three high schools.
