Overview of Landmark Towns of Bucks CountyLearn More
Landmark Towns of Bucks County is a regional economic development initiative of four boroughs along the Delaware Canal and Delaware River—Bristol, Morrisville, Yardley and New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The program’s focus is on the revitalization of these four traditional downtown business districts adjacent to the D&L Trail, and attracting more visitors to use the National Historic Landmark, Delaware Canal, whether for walking, running, cycling or paddling.
Funded by partners on the state and local levels, both public and private, these four community programs began in 2008, following the National Main Street Center’s Four Point Main Street® approach for downtown revitalization. Staffed by the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and guided by a Steering Committee of residents, business owners, elected officials and municipal staff, Landmark Towns’ annual work plans have evolved to meet the needs of the communities.
Today, many visual changes are visible, including:
Local borough officials, residents and business people are involved in committees and actively working on improvements in economic development, design and marketing. Strong partnerships with local business associations and chambers, Visit Bucks County, The Circuit, and other groups assure community support and communication.
Calendars of events in each community continue to expand, drawing new visitors and more residents to enjoy these historic downtowns full of wondrous architecture, museums, numerous restaurants and a variety of retail. Stay tuned as the work continues!
