One of the three original counties founded by William Penn in 1632, Bucks County, has a rich history and deep roots in American History. Published by prolific American cartographer and engraver Henry Schenck Tanner in 1831 during what is considered the ‘golden age’ of American mapmaking, this is truly an authentic piece of cartographical History and unique depiction of the past.
During the American Revolution, General Washington and his troops camped in Bucks County as they prepared to attack Hessian encampments in Trenton, NJ. They crossed the Delaware River on December 26, 1776, and defeated Johann Rall and his troops in the Battle of Trenton; this victory marked a turning point in the War for Independence and was commemorated in 1917 with the opening of the Washington Crossing Park, where 13 historic structures stand to this day.
Immediately Northeast of Philadelphia, this depiction shows the region in a time of considerable growth and prosperity. As Philadelphia grew, immigrants and residents moved into the town of Bensalem, the largest in Bucks County. In the early 19th century, the rise of manufacturing jobs spurred population growth. One of the most iconic estates in Pennsylvania, Andalusia, or the Nicholas Biddle Estate is found in Bensalem, and the Greek Revival architecture is one of the most excellent examples in the United States.
