Welcome to the library of books about the story of Doylestown, PA. Doylestown has had a long, rich history and these books help document that time. In 1745, a license was granted to build a tavern which was named "William Doyle's Tavern". Because of its location at the intersection of roads linking Norristown and New Hope, as well as Philadelphia and Easton (as they are currently named), the area quickly grew into a village. Doylestown became the county seat of Bucks County in 1813 and gained its first church in 1815. Doylestown became a borough in 1838.

The first telegraph station was built in 1846, and the first train station on its new railroad branch in 1856. A waterworks arrived in 1869 and the first telephone line in 1878. Doylestown has continued its growth through the years, and has become a friendly, prosperous community and a wonderful place to live.
