Warminster was originally part of Southampton Township, which itself was founded in 1682 by William Penn. Officially established in 1711, Warminster was named after a small town in England's county of Wiltshire. Like its English namesake, Warminster, PA has a rich history. It was settled by English and Scotch-Irish colonists following a grant of land received by William Penn from King Charles II.
In its early days, Warminster was the site of the Battle of Crooked Billet during the Revolutionary War. This battle was a major event in American history, but it was a defeat for George Washington’s colonial troops. One of Warminster’s historical gems is Craven Hall, which holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places listings in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The town was also home to William Tennent, an important religious leader and educator.
Agriculture was once the lifeblood of Warminster, giving rise to such innovations as the first model steamboat, designed by John Fitch and Steven Pagano. The model was successfully tried out on the Delaware River. Warminster also played a significant role during World War II when it served as a weapons development and airplane testing facility for the U.S. Navy. Later, the naval site was repurposed for training missions for the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo space programs.
