Strolling along the streets and avenues of Morrisville,

Pennsylvania, and around the countryside near the

Delaware River's scenic falls, one wanders into a variety

of places that have witnessed many extraordinary events

in America's life, beginning with William Penn's first

land purchase from the Indian warriors at "Graystones"

in 1682 and on to the many successful manufacturing

companies in the 1930s and 1940s.

This collection of over 200 photographs spans

more than three hundred years of Morrisville's diverse

history. In particular, this volume recounts many

stories involving Summerseat, a structure that served as

headquarters to General Washington in the winter of

1776 and as a home to American foreign consul Thomas

Barclay and to Robert Morris (1791-98) and George

Clymer (1798-1805), signers of both the Declaration

of Independence and the Constitution. Besides just

political figures, Morrisville has also been home to

many contemporary personalities who have risen to

national prominence in the sports arena and in the fine

arts community.
