Perkasie and Sellersville are neighboring communities that have a rich history dating back to the 1700’s. They are the homes to many talented local artists, art galleries, cultural attractions, and thriving new businesses.
ACCBC President Jim Sell noted, “Perkasie and Sellersville occupy a unique spot in the region’s history. The tour brought visitors to Upper Bucks for a personalized look at this area’s ‘hidden gems.’ This was an exciting opportunity to explore and learn about the cultural amenities in this often overlooked part of Bucks County.”
The tour included a visit to the 200-year old Washington House Hotel & Restaurant and the Sellersville Theater, a ride on Bucks County’s oldest carousel, and a peek at Perkasie Park’s 19th Century Victorian cottages.
Along the way, visitors experienced some of the up-and-coming businesses that are part of the Pennridge area’s economic revival, including the headquarters of Eric & Christopher (a nationally-known pillow company started by two Bucks County artists), and Chimayo Gallery.
The day concluded with a tour of the Free Will Brewing Company, which is quickly becoming a household name among craft beer lovers up and down the East Coast.
It was a fantastic day!
