Buckingham is an unincorporated community within the Buckingham Township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Physically, Buckingham is the biggest township in the county, covering 33 square miles. Its geography is dominated by Buckingham Mountain which rises to a height of 520 feet, but its landscape is characterized by gently rolling countryside. Blessed by many streams and rich soil, it has yielded bountiful harvests for 300 years. Many German-speaking dissenters from high church orthodoxy were also early settlers in the county. As a consequence, the wonderful old stone houses and barns so typical of Bucks County reflect both English and German architectural traditions. In Buckingham and the Buckingham area, there are many important yet little-known historical landmarks. One is Bogarts Tavern, which is now the General Greene Inn, on the corner of Route 413 or Durham Road and Route 263 or Old York Road. It was from this building that General Nathanael Greene, commander of George Washington's left-wing during the Battle of Trenton, made his headquarters during the winter of 1776. Agriculture has been Buckingham's principal industry since its founding, and the Township still retains a strong farm community. However, since the mid-1970s, there has been a substantial shift in the landscape from rural to suburban. New needs have accompanied the change in character. The Township now provides public parks and recently purchased an additional 40 acres for needed sports fields.
