Discover Quakertown: Where History Meets Modernity

Welcome to Quakertown, a vibrant borough nestled in the heart of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Boasting a population of 9,359 residents as of 2020, Quakertown is a thriving community with a rich history and a bright future. Located just 15 miles south of Allentown and Bethlehem and 40 miles north of Philadelphia, Quakertown is uniquely positioned as a border town between the Delaware Valley and Lehigh Valley metropolitan areas.

A Glimpse into Quakertown's Past

Quakertown's story begins with its founders, members of the Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers. Although the settlement took root long before it officially adopted the name "Quakertown," it wasn't until 1803, with the opening of the first post office, that the name became official.

A Brush with History

Quakertown played a pivotal role in the American Revolutionary War. On September 18, 1777, a convoy of wagons transporting the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia to Allentown made a historic stop in Quakertown. The Liberty Bell found temporary shelter behind the home of Evan Foulke on West Broad Street, while the entourage stayed at the Red Lion Inn. Remarkably, the Red Lion Inn was also the birthplace of the John Fries' Rebellion in 1799.

Growth in the 1800s

In 1854, Quakertown elected its first Burgess, marking a significant milestone in its development. The arrival of the North Pennsylvania Railroad facilitated greater access to the area, leading to a remarkable increase in population. By 1880, nearly 1,800 residents called Quakertown home.

Quakertown is home to several historical landmarks, including Liberty Hall, Quakertown Historic District, Quakertown Passenger and Freight Station, and the Enoch Roberts House, all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Industry and Population Surge

The Civil War era, combined with nationwide economic expansion, transformed Quakertown from a tiny village into a bustling commercial manufacturing center. During the nineteenth century, the town was home to cigar and cigar box factories, silk mills, harness factories, and stove foundries. Notably, Quakertown generated its own electrical power until 1969.

Today, Quakertown stands as a dynamic community with extensive mall developments along Pennsylvania Route 309. These developments house a wide array of restaurants, businesses, and retail outlets, contributing to the borough's growth. Quakertown's population soared from 3,014 in 1900 to 3,801 in 1910 and reached 5,150 by 1940. At the 2010 census, the borough was home to 8,979 residents.

Interurban Connection

From 1901 to 1951, Quakertown served as an essential stop on the Lehigh Valley Transit Company's electric interurban trolley line, connecting Allentown and Philadelphia. During World War II, when gasoline was rationed, the trolley line played a crucial role in transporting passengers. However, like many other railways, its business eventually waned, and it ceased operation in 1951. The LVT station at the corner of Main and Broad streets, across from the Red Lion Inn, stands as a historical landmark, marked on one wall to commemorate its history.
