Bucks County Courthouse is located at 55 East Court St., Doylestown PA 18901; phone: 215-348-6000. The borough is part of the Central Bucks School District. Its library is the headquarters and main branch of the Bucks County Library network. There are a dozen, distinct residential neighborhoods throughout the borough, with homes of most types; among the neighborhoods are found residences that were built in virtually every decade of the 18th through the 21st centuries.

The economy, history and cultural aspects of Doylestown cast a large and valuable shadow across the small (population approximately 9,000 as of 2008) borough's streets and alleys. Boutiques, restaurants, museums, bookstores, and myriad other commercial and places of culture one would not expect to find in such a compact place roughly 30 miles from Center City Philadelphia. Novelist James A. Michener considered Doylestown to be his home. Anthropologist Margaret Mead lived for a time on Court Street in the Borough.

Doylestown has a fair number of properties that have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, most of which are documented separately on the site — follow these links:
