Celebrating Benjamin Parry in New Hope


Once a year, in a tradition dating back two decades, New Hope residents gather at Parry’s 18th century Georgian-style mansion on South Main Street to celebrate Benjamin Parry Day.

The New Hope Historical Society holds a birthday party every March for the so-called “Father of New Hope,” who helped make New Hope the industrial and manufacturing capitol of Bucks County in the 1800s.

This year he’d be 266 years old.
