Doylestown lawn care service
Lawn Care Service in Golden Doylestown, PA
Doylestown is in the southeast corner of Pennsylvania, near the border with New York State. In fact, it's 80 miles southwest of New York City and just 35 miles from the center of Philadelphia. Doylestown has a population of around 8,300.
Doylestown got its start in March 1745. At that time, William Doyle built a tavern on what is currently the northwest corner of Main and State Streets. For many years, it was known as "William Doyle's Tavern." A second inn named the Sign of the Ship was erected in 1774. The location at the crossroads between Norristown, New Hope and the road to Easton and Philadelphia quickly grew the little hamlet into a village. The Fountain House, now on the National Register of Historic Places, was constructed at the corner of Main and State Streets in 1758. The Fountain House is now the location of a Starbucks.
The first post office was established in 1802; the first postmaster was Charles Stewart, who carried letters at the top of his high beaver hat. However, it wasn't until 1815 that the first church was erected, followed by more churches throughout the 19th century.
The telegraph came to Doylestown in 1846, gaslighting arrived in 1854, and the North Pennsylvania Railroad came to Doylestown in 1856. The first telephones arrived in 1878, and in 1897 the first trolleys connecting Doylestown with Newton, Willow Grove, and Easton were built. A sewer system and water treatment plant were built in 1903. However, the industry never really developed in Doylestown, and the town evolved into a residential and professional center.
Over the 20th century, Doylestown has had a few ups and downs; like the rest of the country, Doylestown fell on hard times during the Great Depression. By the 1960s, the town had many dilapidated storefronts and vacant buildings downtown. The Bucks County Redevelopment Authority wanted to demolish more than two dozen historic buildings. The local business community rejected it and created its own redevelopment plan called Operation '64, the Doylestown Plan for Self-Help Downtown Renewal. Operation 64' successfully saved Doylestown's historic buildings and character, and improved the business as well.
The recession of the 1980s hit hard, and once again, it was time to revitalize the downtown area. This time, Doylestown looked outward, by appealing to an out-of-town audience. The fact is, Doylestown has long been sought out as a pastoral destination for New Yorkers and Philadelphians. The upper class of New York and Philadelphia, have long maintained summer homes and country estates nearby. Doylestown received official designation as a "resort town", which exempted it from liquor license caps.
Moreover, the empty downtown buildings began to fill up with a vibrant nightlife of trendy restaurants and bars. The Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, Mercer Museum, and the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa bring a stream of weekend visitors through Doylestown as well. Finally, the art deco style County Theater was restored and now showcases art-house productions. The old prison is now the James A. Michener Art Museum. The town also is proud home to a music conservatory, various artists' and writers' organizations, and many cultural activities.
