Lumberville, PA

A Quaint Village Settled by Colonel George Wall

Lumberville is famous for its suspension footbridge that crosses the Delaware River to Raven Rock, New Jersey. The Lumberville Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. Travelers looking for something to eat will find a number of popular dining establishments within the historic district.

Seven miles north of New Hope, along River Road, is the charming village of Lumberville, settled by Colonel George Wall, a Revolutionary War officer and Bucks County Sheriff. It was originally named Wall’s Saw Mills and Walls Landing, after the Colonel. Several local artists make their home in Lumberville and its picturesque scenery along the waterway will delight visitors as they enjoy a place steeped in time.

Several notable figures have ties to Lumberville. It was home to John Greenleaf Whittier from 1839-1840, the birthplace of 19th century artist Martin Johnson Heade, and the spot where Paul and Julia Child were married in 1946. William Tinsman purchased the lumber mills in 1869, and they are still run and operated by his descendants today.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
