"Cherishing the Past, Celebrating the Present, Welcoming the Future."
On December 11, 1722, a petition and a map were presented to the Quarter Sessions Court at Bristol to establish a new township on lands lying “between Southampton Township and other lands and Neshaminy Creek.” The petition was signed by 21 petitioners. The court took this petition under advisement and on December 14, 1722, in under five days, the petition was approved and Northampton Township was born.
This year, Northampton Township will be celebrating the 300th year of its’ incorporation,1722-2022. The Northampton 300th Committee has been busy at work planning a variety of programs, activities and events to commemorate this historic milestone. Presentations are planned throughout the year to include Northampton Township departments, local schools, organizations and businesses in the Community.
