Delaware Valley Advance, January 18th, 1968

Bucks County legislators announced this week that bids for two phases of construction of Pennsbury Manor, a full scale re-creation of William Penn's "personal plantation," at Morrisville, will be opened at the General State Authority headquarters, Harrisburg, Feb. 7.

The manor is located along the Delaware River about 20 miles from Philadelphia, northeast of Tullytown in Falls Township, Bucks County.

The initial phase of the project will consist of site development, including clearing of the area, construction of new sidewalks, retaining walls, removal of trees, grading and seeding. The construction will be of wood, brick, and plaster with concrete footers and foundations. This phase of the project is scheduled for completion by Dec 11, 1968. . .

100 years ago in Bucks

News item as reported from Tullytown in the Newtown Enterprise of July 1912. The car barn was a railroad repair facility in the Penn Valley section of Falls.

Benjamin Schofield, 58 years old, a resident of Tullytown, had his left arm so badly crushed last Sunday morning at the car barn at Penn Valley that amputation was necessary. He was employed as a car repairer. A wheel of a car at the repair pit passed over his arm. The operation was performed at St. Francis Hospital, Trenton.
