Propane Delivery Perkasie Pennsylvania


Perkasie is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania about 35 miles north of Philadelphia. Both the town of Perkasie and Pocasie Creek derive their name from the Lenape Unami phrase Poekskossing which translates to "One who goes to the place to crack nuts". The Dutch and Swedish that were there before the British settlements pronounced the word with an r and it stuck. There was doubtless a village on the site of the present town before William Penn’s Perkasie Manor was settled. The "Manor" of Perkasie was one of several in Bucks County and contained 11,462 acres. Laid out and surveyed in 1708 it embraced most of Hilltown and Rockhill Township. On June 8, 1890, a disastrous fire began at the livery stable located at 7th and Chestnut Streets where twelve buildings were destroyed. Less than a month later, on July 4, 1890, a committee appointed by Perkasie Borough Council met to form the Hope Fire Company. 

Perkasie Borough is divided by the Perkiomen Creek’s East Branch and like many towns with a creek, it has an extensive history of flooding. On June 26, 1988, about 15 percent of the town, including many historic buildings, were burned down in what became known as The Great Perkasie Fire. This massive fire was started by two 12-year-old boys who were playing with a lighter near the coal bins behind the Shelley & Sons lumberyard at Seventh and Market Streets. The fire was fought by about 300 firefighters who came from over 50 fire companies in three counties. Among the historic buildings lost were the American House and the Moyer-Kantner Funeral Home, both dating from 1870; the Herstine Building; and the J.G. Moyer building.
