Petition to acquire the historic Stokes house from the county


We the undersigned are in support of having the Haycock Historical Society make an application to the Bucks County Commissioners, to lease the property at 1299 Apple Road, known, in Haycock Township, as the Stokes House. The history that this house represents is an asset to our community. The Haycock Historical Society is willing to lease the house for 1 dollar a year. The society will maintain the house and grants will be pursued to preserve and restore the home to its colonial period. The society will make the house available to the public as a resource of Haycock History. The pre-revolutionary home deserves to be a living breathing symbol of Haycock History.
