Our Lost Tohickon Valley HaycockOur Lost Tohickon Valley Haycock Township Bucks County PA The title will be available for purchase all throughout the 3-day show. The title details the community and lives of the people who lived in the area of Haycock Township, known as Tohickon Village. The area was condemned by eminent domain to make way for the construction of man-made Lake Nockamixon, completed in 1973.  This year's HHS calendar will be available for purchase and will feature a collection of black and white photo’s complementing the new book.   Each Haycock Historical Society member household will receive one calendar which is our gift to our loyal members.  Hint: Calendars make great gifts for out-of-state family.
