The Holicong Village was once the location of a historic period campsite of the Lenni-Lenape. 1/2 was an ideal place for settlement with its stream and abundant game. Legend has it that the spring and underground river was an important local landmark. The natural spring which is connected to this river is known today as the Konkey Hole and the Indian campsite was near this venerated spot. It is a beautiful place to live and work, but radon is prevalent in Holicong. This puts you and your loved ones at risk.
Radon is a radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium found in trace amounts in soil, rock, and water. Radon is the main source of our exposure to all radiation. The US Surgeon General and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have determined that radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing for Radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon.
The Old York Road runs through the village and is one of the oldest roads in Bucks County. This section was built c.1720 and was largely responsible for Holicong’s early growth. Intersecting Old York Road at the village is Holicong Road, a fairly narrow secondary road dotted with farm complexes and open fields. This was the first, and is the only road built Over Buckingham Mountain. The past which goes over the mountain was built literally in steps so the carriages and wagons could go up a level, then let the horses rest before proceeding further.
