The town is considered one of the most charming in the state.

An upcoming walking tour will take residents and visitors of a Bucks County borough through one of the area’s most historic towns.

The Yardley Historical Association will be hosting a walking tour of both the Delaware Canal Towpath and South Canal Street in Yardley on April 27 from 2 – 4 PM.

Local historian Susan Taylor will oversee the walking tour. One of the stops that will be made is the historic AME Church, now called the Gather Place. The property is currently being rescued by conservator Shirley Lee Corsey and a group of volunteers.

“With a boatyard, South Canal Street was a hub of activity while mules still pulled coal-laden boats along the canal,” organizers of the event said online. “Later, when the railroad bridge was built, many of the houses on the east side of the street were built for the workers.”

The historical society, headquartered in the Old Library at Lake Afton, offers tours and lectures throughout the year, sharing the stories and historic of the area and its important role in the founding of America.
