Tinicum Township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is a picturesque and historic community characterized by its serene natural beauty and rich heritage. Located approximately forty miles north of Center City, Philadelphia, and the same distance west of New York City, it offers a peaceful rural atmosphere while still being accessible to major urban centers. The township encompasses an area of 31.2 square miles, with 30.2 square miles of land and a significant water portion, including Tohickon Creek flowing into the Delaware River. This natural boundary separates the township from New Jersey. Tinicum Township is home to several quaint villages, including Bunker Hill, Erwinna, and Upper Black Eddy, each contributing to its unique charm.
Tinicum Township remained just beyond civilization's limits as Europeans settled on farmland in lower parts of Bucks County early in the 18th century. Inhabited by Native Americans, the land was not appealing to Europeans. Tinicum was slowly settled by the English, Scotch-Irish, and Germans until early in the 20th century, when Eastern Europeans arrived, followed by artists and writers seeking refuge from city life. The hilly, rocky, and sometimes swampy topography that discouraged early settlement has continued to limit development of the rural areas between the six villages and hamlets of the township, so that early folks returning today would recognize the landscape and many of the homesteads they established here. Through vintage photographs, Tinicum Township, Bucks County celebrates the area's rich history.
