New Hope - Solebury Community Association

Established in 1949, the New Hope-Solebury Community Association supports the needs of the New Hope-Solebury School District. The Associations' fund raising efforts have been responsible for the gymnasium, a 17 acre recreation field and Community Center, and the track. The current project is a new scoreboard.

Historic Carversville Society

In 1979, the Department of the Interior, recognizing that Carversville was a prime example of a 19th century farming community, designated the village "Historic" thus placing it on the National Register of Historic Places. Because of this designation, it is now under the protection of Federal, State and local laws that protect its historic buildings and its character.

Local villagers interested in preserving the history and architecture of Carversville established the Historic Carversville Society in 1971. The objectives of the Society are to collect information on the village, record material of historic interest and identify and preserve historic sites. In an effort to meet these objectives, the Society has been funding research on historic homes and most recently has begun to record oral histories from some of the older residents. A Board of Directors elected by the membership governs the Society.

Solebury Township's Historic Ordinance, which governs the historic districts in the Township, has been an invaluable tool for the Society in preserving the village. Under its provisions, the Historic Carversville Society has been successful in protecting many historic homes and in maintaining the unique character of the village.

The Society also sponsors social events in the village each year. These events help to promote a sense of community and commitment that make Carversville stand apart from other villages. Among these events are Carversville Clean-up Day, Films in the Field (outdoor movies shown on the wall of the General Store), and Caroling in the Square which occurs just before Christmas. The Great Carversville Road Rally takes place in October and the proceeds benefit the Society's scholarship program. The General Membership meeting in November is the time when the Society reviews the accomplishments of the year and the plans for the next year. The village also hosts an award winning community garden that is cared for by residents and which has become a place where villagers meet to share food and conversation. The largest annual event, Carversville Day, is held in May. It is a unique village fair with food, crafts, games, entertainment, pony rides, a raffle and auction and the irresistible Carversville Pet Parade.

These events are open to everyone and membership in the Society is not required for attendance.

For those who wish to join the Society, membership is open to all residents of the village as well as anyone interested in history and preservation. Dues are $20 per year. Membership, donations and proceeds from various events fund all of the Society's activities. If you would like more information about the Historic Carversville Society, please click here to visit their website.

Bucks County Audubon Society (Honey Hollow Environmental Educational Center)

The Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS) is a private, non-profit organization founded as a chapter of the National Audubon Society in 1969. Its mission is to foster an awareness, understanding, and above all, a sense of stewardship of the environment.

Since its inception, BCAS has been dedicated to conserving land and wildlife, promoting awareness of environmental problems, educating the community about the interdependence of humans and the natural world and furthering the stewardship of our land, air and water resources. BCAS operates the Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center, open to school and community groups for educational programs throughout the year. Because of the early conservation work carried out by local farmers and the Soil Conservation Service, the entire watershed of the Honey Hollow Creek was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1969. It remains the only agriculturally based National Historic Landmark in the United States. The Center also sponsors public programs for all ages, from pre-schoolers through adults, as well as community outreach programs.

Bowman's Hill Wild Flower Preserve

Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, located just south of New Hope on River Road, is a unique resource in Solebury Township. The Preserve features 134 acres of Pennsylvania native plants gowing in naturalistic settings for the public to visit and enjoy year-round.

Of the approximately 2000 native plants documented in Pennsylvania, nearly 1000 species of wildflowers, trees, shrubs, vines and ferns grow at the Preserve. This extraordinarily diverse collection of native plants, and the biological communities they support, provides a one-of-a-kind recreational and educational experience.

Visitors can explore the Preserve along well-marked trails that wind through picturesque woodlands and meadows, and along a pond and Pidcock Creek. The Preserve also offers educational programs and tours for adults, children, school and other groups, and for professionals. Gardeners and landscapers can glean ideas from a display garden of showy native plants and purchase native plants during the growing season. The Visitor Center offers more resources, including trail maps, a bird observatory, a collection of mounted birds, nests and eggs, exhibits, a library and the Twinleaf Shop. A non-profit organization, the Preserve offers many opportunities for volunteers to participate. The Preserve's mission is to lead people to a greater appreciation of native plants, to an understanding of their importance to all life, and to a commitment to the preservation of a healthy and diverse natural world.


Homeowner Associations

Many of the developments in Solebury have Homeowners Associations. Responsibilities of these Homeowners Associations range from holding conservation easements to owning and operating water and wastewater treatment systems.

In each instance, the Homeowner Association is governed by a set of by-laws and a council or board. The by-laws and policies of the associations vary. In essence, the Homeowners Associations act as governing bodies that address issues regarding the rules and regulations of each Homeowners Association.

Many of the Homeowners Associations contract with a management company to take care of the administrative requirements. Below is a list of Homeowners Associations and their property management company, if applicable:
