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.
