The land on which New Britain Township sits was first the home of the Lenni Lenape nation. They settled in the area as early as 1397. Among this indigenous community was Chief Tamanend, who in the 17th century negotiated a fateful peace treaty with William Penn, making possible the creation of both Bucks County and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Chief Tamanend lived out his later years in the woods that became New Britain.
The Township of New Britain was established in 1723. There was one major roadway through town, which today is US 202. In 1778, George Washington and his army reportedly passed through New Britain via this road while traveling to Valley Forge. Also during the Revolutionary War, the Marquise de Lafayette was briefly headquartered at the town’s Sign of the Horses and Wagon tavern.
In the 19th century, residents began digging for lead around Neshaminy Creek. A subsequent “lead rush” started in 1861 and continued for decades. In 1970, the township flooded the mining area, creating Lake Galena (galena is the mineral that prospectors mined).
Today, New Britain is growing fast, with the population increasing almost every decade since 1940. Even so, it maintains its rural appeal, and visitors love stopping by to antique, see historical sites and relax in the township’s Peace Valley Park.
