Quakertown is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with an estimated population of just under nine thousand. This quaint township is slightly south of Allentown and Bethlehem and North of Philadelphia, making it the keystone between the larger Delaware Valley and Lehigh Valley.
Quakertown was originally settled by the Quakers, sometimes referred to as the Religious Society of Friends, but did not receive its name until the first post office opened in 1803. This area of Pennsylvania has strong ties to both the Revolutionary War and Civil War. First, in 1777, during the American Revolutionary War, wagons carrying the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia to Allentown stopped in Quakertown, and the bell was stored in the town overnight. The Civil War, too, influenced the small village of Quakertown as it became a commercial manufacturing center as the conflict caused national economic expansion.
