Village in central northwestern Warminster Township at the intersection of Old York Rd and Street Rd. The Warminster Post Office was established June 18, 1855, with William Glasgow as postmaster. At different periods for more than a century and a quarter this village was a horse racing center. The first track was laid out for a half mile on Street Road. Here races and militia trainings were held for many years. Thomas Beans, a famous horseman, was once manager of this track. Later the track was established on a level piece of private land. The Warminster Driving Club maintained these grounds in recent times. The old tavern, opened in 1730, was a noted house of entertainment under many landlords.
