East Rockhill Twp, Bucks County, PA

Rockhill Station

Gold Discovered Here

Rockhill Station takes its name from the mountainous ridge which extends across the northwestern parts of East and West Rockhill townships. The area of the township where Rockhill Station is located was largely uninhabited 150 years ago and was marked as "woodlands and rocks" on the atlases and maps of that time.

Rockhill Station is the only village in the township not located at a road intersection, and it is the only one that is not partially located within another municipality. Rockhill Station is also the location of the only confirmed discovery of gold in Bucks County.

All of the dozen or so buildings in Rockhill Station are wood-frame and masonry residences. Although none of the buildings is distinguished architecturally, the buildings have a consistency of scale that gives the village a uniform character. District boundaries are formed by the woods, quarry and railroad tracks. [1]
