- Newtown, the county seat of Bucks County from 1726 to 1813, is one of the most historic areas in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Newtown Historic Association collection on Newtown anniversaries, circa 1959, circa 1976, circa 1984, and circa 2009, consists largely of materials relating to productions of "Sweet Land," a play about Newtown history, that was performed for Newtown's 275th, 300th, and 325th anniversary celebrations. The collection also documents other aspects of anniversary celebrations with materials such as correspondence, planning documents, financial papers, ephemera, and scrapbooks. Materials relating to "Voices of Newtown," an oral history project conducted for the town's 300th anniversary, are also included.
