A man named William Doyle once lived at the busiest dirt road intersection in the area. In 1745, he decided to build a tavern so that travellers would have a place to rest on the journey. Due to his popularity, his town eventually came to be called Doylestown. This intersection actually marks the center of the borough and the heart of our lovely town, Main and State Streets.

It's always great to see historic pictures of our town so we can get a glimpse from the eyes of our ancestors. We thank Rutherford's Camera at 23 W. State St. for these wonderful photographs.
