Buck's Store- 225 Firehouse Rd.

          What was once a rural area dominated by family farms has given way to an influx of new residents living on subdivisions on those former farms.

           A large recreation area, Beltzville State Park now covers a major portion of the northern section of the Township. On a hot summer day thousands of visitors find their way to the lake to enjoy the water and open space.

          In spite of the new developments, the Township continues to have among its major attractions, the blue skies, forested mountains, and grassy fields.    We hope this rural atmosphere continues,  and that we treat the land with the same respect demonstrated by the Lenape Indians and first settlers over 200 years ago.
