County Seat: Doylestown, PA

Historical Bucks County is set in the south-eastern part of the state of Pennsylvania. To the south is Philadelphia and Bristol County. To the west is Montgomery County and to the east is the Delaware River.

It is the place that I call home.

Bucks is the standard contraction for the English county of Buckinghamshire. William Penn, founder of the state, had his roots in the Buckinghamshire village named for his family, near High Wycombe. Thus, stretching American naming norms a bit, there exist both Bucks, Penn. and Penn, Bucks. Which latter, as it happens, is not so far away from the place I used to call home before I moved somewhere with better beer.
