Herald office moving to Doylestown


Effective Aug. 1, the Bucks County Herald is moving from its 1850s farmhouse in Lahaska that the Wingert family purchased in 2007 to modern, garden-style offices at the corner of North Easton and Saw Mill roads in Doylestown.

“As a paper that serves every corner of Bucks County we felt it was very important to be in our county seat,” said Joe Wingert, publisher. “We are also reducing our occupancy costs by over 30%. This means we can devote more resources to local journalism and less on overhead.”

Wingert also said the new space will also afford the Herald greater visibility and accessibility.

“Over 20,000 cars drive past that corner every day. Readers can pick up their papers and walk in to see us any time,” said Wingert. “We may be changing our address but we are not changing our culture of accessibility.”

The Wingert family sold its Lahaska property to Joshua Kontz who plans to use the main building for the offices of his general contracting company, 215Build.

The Bucks County Herald is a nonprofit news organization that covers over 30 municipalities and six school districts in Bucks and Hunterdon counties. Founded in 2002 by Bridget Wingert, executive editor, and her late husband, Joseph T. Wingert, the Herald will celebrate its 20th anniversary this fall.

The Herald’s new address will be 875 North Easton Road, Doylestown 18902. The phone number will remain the same: 215-794-1096.
