March Into Doylestown History This Month

Who is looking forward to warmer weather? We certainly are! It has been a cold, long winter, and we are more than ready to see some green plants pop up once our mounds of snow finally disappear.

As we inch closer to spring, we look forward to catching some programs celebrating Doylestown’s history. The Doylestown Bookshop and Doylestown Historical Society have partnered to put together presentations to be held each Saturday in March at the locally owned independent bookstore.

For a full schedule, you can check the websites of both groups, but here is a small sampling of what will be offered:
— March 7: Hear about Maplewood, a subdivision in Doylestown that sprouted up to accommodate returning WWII vets. It will be an upcoming exhibit at the DHS house.
— March 14: Learn about the legacy of W. Atlee Burpee, the man who founded a garden seed empire and cultivated some hybrid plants that are still popular today.
— March 21: See the celebrated “Tops of the Town” poster produced by Doylestownian Kevin Jameson and hear how it originated.
— March 28: Sing along with Jessie Barth and Lori Rosolowski as they lead a vocal tribute (with a twist!) to noted lyricist Oscar Hammerstein, whose former farm in Doylestown is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

We hope you will take advantage of some of these interesting programs. As always, let us know if we can provide help with any of your lodging needs.
