Perkasie Park Celebrates Founders Day 2017
The Historic Perkasie Park Association celebrated its 135th anniversary and its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places with its fifth annual Founders Day on August 5, 2017.
At the event, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick presented the association with a resolution read at Congress about the Park, along with a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in the Park's honor. Other speakers included former state Rep. Paul Clymer and Perkasie Historical Society President Charles Baum.
Bucks County Folk Song society members Unsafe At Any Speed then played acoustic folk songs after the Historic Register presentation.
Perkasie Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in September 2016 as a Historic District; it also has been designated as a Historic Structure by Perkasie Borough. Its auditorium is on the Bucks County Heritage Conservancy list. The Park has held summertime religious services in the auditorium since 1882 and it has hosted services for nearly every religious group in the local Perkasie/Pennridge region.
