Overview and metadata sections
Yardley News, which began publication around 1947, is now part of BucksLocalNews.com published by Journal Register Company. The newspaper covers Yardley Borough, Lower Makefield Township, Morrisville Borough, and all of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Jeff Werner served as the newspaper's manager and editor for several years from around the late 1990s to the mid 2000s.
This collection consists of photograph files from Yardley News. The vast majority of the photographs are roughly sorted chronologically by newspaper issue; a small portion have been sorted alphabetically by subject. The photographs depict local events, people, organizations, and buildings.
Yardley Historic Association also has an almost complete run of the newspaper from 1947-2003.
Gift of Yardley News, circa 2009.
Summary descriptive information on this collection was compiled in 2012-2014 as part of a project conducted by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to make better known and more accessible the largely hidden collections of small, primarily volunteer run repositories in the Philadelphia area. The Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories (HCI-PSAR) was funded by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This is a preliminary finding aid. No physical processing, rehousing, reorganizing, or folder listing was accomplished during the HCI-PSAR project.
In some cases, more detailed inventories or finding aids may be available on-site at the repository where this collection is held; please contact Yardley Historical Association directly for more information.
