Last Year the Middletown Township Board of Supervisors recognized the establishment of the African American Museum of Bucks County at the historic, county‑owned Boone Farm property in the Township. Located at the intersection of Bridgetown Pike and Langhorne-Newtown Road, Boone Farm was once an active farm property with structures originating as far back as 1716. Some structures including the Godfrey‑Kirk House and a stone barn foundation are among some of the most significant preserved properties in the entire United States.
Linda Salley, executive director of the museum, said when Black Americans came north for a better life, they formed a community in Bucks County and some worked at Boone Farm.
The organizations website states: "The Museum honors the rich legacy of the African American experience, inspiring pride in our heritage, and sharing information and stories about the diverse journey of our people and our shared ancestry. Our programs and exhibits explore the history and heritage of the diverse cultures of Bucks County and beyond. We tell these stories through special exhibitions, public events, and educational programs.
