Boone Farm: Its People and Place

in Middletown History 

A Presentation by Author Patricia Mervine

The property we call Boone Farm has stood on Route 413, on land now part of Core Creek Park, for over 300 years. Its ownership changed hands over 20 times. I was curious:  Who built this unusual house? Who were the people who lived there? How did they contribute to the community? What events and changes throughout the history of Middletown did the owners witness? How did the house and property change over time? Were there any enslaved people on the farm?

Handwritten wills and deeds, genealogy records, old newspaper articles, Quaker minutes dating back to the early 1700s, even the Smithsonian Institute’s online archives were explored. Every piece of information I uncovered led to more questions, more avenues to be pursued, more verification to be sought. I discovered that war, slavery, religion, and the rise and fall of the rural industrial region of Bridgetown are all a part of this property’s past.

Come out to learn about this unique property, the people who lived there, and its exciting future as the new home of the African American Museum of Bucks County.

Sunday, March 26 at 2 PM

At Middletown Friends Meetinghouse      453 W. Maple Ave in Langhorne ​

Actress Carol Simon Levin portrays Lillian Moller Gilbreth, motion study pioneer and “Cheaper by the Dozen” mother of 12, and shares the stories of other overlooked women innovators, including many women of color. From Margaret Knight (the 19th century “Female Edison”) to Hollywood superstar Hedy Lamarr, these “Mothers of Invention” changed our lives, yet their accomplishments were all too often ignored, discounted or credited to others.  Come out and be inspired!  What a great way to celebrate Women's History Month!
