The Newtown Historic Association, Inc. was incorporated
in 1964 as an organization dedicated to the preservation
of Newtown's historical heritage. Our mission is to stimulate
interest in, preserve, celebrate and share the historical
heritage of both Newtown borough and township.
Our research center is a repository of deeds, wills, diaries,
books, maps, photos, genealogies and other documents relating
to Newtown and the surrounding area, especially strong
in the period when Newtown was the County Seat (1725-1813),
including a special collection on early America's foremost
folk painter, Edward Hicks (1780-1849).
The headquarters is housed in the Court Inn (known as
the Half-Moon Inn during the mid 18th century), located
at the corner of Court Street and Centre Avenue in historic
Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Inn is open for
tours showcasing the Half Moon Inn (Court Inn) and the many artifacts
and holdings of the Newtown Historic Association.
