A number of long-time residents have wonderful memories of their life in New Hope and Solebury Township. The Solebury Township Historical Society (STHS) and the New Hope Historical Society (NHHS) have agreed to link the oral histories of the two societies. This brings a great richness to both web sites as residents of town and countryside have recorded insights about locations and events across the entire community stretching to Doylestown, Lambertville, and many Buck County locations. These stories give real insight into the history of the area. Their remembrances and stories are being recorded through personal interviews conducted by the Oral History committees of both Societies.

The oral histories are being kept on the STHS website.
If you know of a township resident who has interesting tales to tell, please contact STHS.
Also contact STHS if you are interested in joining the committee to learn how to take and/or transcribe oral histories.
