The township is named for Buckinghamshire, England, home of the Penn family. Early settlers were Quakers who moved from Falls Township to "the woods." Buckingham is one of those townships whose terrain rapidly see saws between traces of the past and contemporary residential subdivision and development.

Buckingham Mountain [1] ... "is one of a broken range of hills extending almost due west from the river Delaware just below New Hope and terminating at Durham Road (Route 413) just below the village of Buckingham. Its extent is 2 and 1/2 miles in length by a mile in width at the broadest part of its base. Its elevation is abrupt, 545 feet above tidewater and about 250 feet above surrounding valleys. ... Poets and writers have been intrigued by its legends and historical associations.

With living places for virtually every style and need, Buckingham is a delightful mix of contemporary neighborhoods (see column, left) punctuated by numerous historic villages and hamlets, including 5 districts that are on the National Register of Historic Places. These dozen historic resources are Bridge Valley,, Buckingham Valley, Glendale, Forest Grove, Furlong, Highlon, Holicong, Lahaska, Mechanicsville, Mozart, and Wycombe.
