Allen Township

Allen Township was originally part of Bucks County. Thirty-seven signers formed a petition to the Court of Quarter Sessions in Newtown, Bucks County, in June 1748 for the creation of a township. The name is derived from Chief Justice William Allen of Philadelphia who owned the "Allen Tract" of 5,000 acres. While the Township has a predominantly rural atmosphere, it includes a mixture of rural, suburban and industrial/ commercial.

Allen Township is especially proud of the Kreidersville Covered Bridge, which was built in 1839. The Bridge was restored and closed to traffic in 1961.
