A Bucks County museum recently received a major grant from an organization helping similar establishments around the Philadelphia area.

The African American Museum of Bucks County, located at 827 Langhorne-Newtown Road in Langhorne, recently received a grant of $25,000 from the PPL Foundation. The grant money will be used to support the development of video programming and educational events featuring the untold stories and hidden figures of Bucks County.  

“There are tremendous organizations and people working to strengthen our communities and expand opportunities for those who might not otherwise have them,” said Ryan Hill, president of the PPL Foundation.

“The PPL Foundation is pleased to provide support that helps them make a real and lasting difference in people’s lives.”

The museum, a nonprofit organization, has shared the important history of African Americans in the Bucks County area for years.

Their goal is to honor “the legacy of the African American experience, inspiring pride in our heritage, educating about the diverse journey of our people, sharing stories that depict our shared ancestry, thus enriching the lives of Bucks County families,” according to their website.
