Welcome to Blue Bell
Around the Block
Part of One of the Area’s Oldest Quaker Settlements.
The earliest settlers here were farmers, and remnants of this bucolic way of life are still apparent here. Along with farming, weaving and milling were two popular occupations for early residents. During the Revolutionary War, George Washington and his troops spent time in this area. Much like neighboring communities and many others in the United States, industrialization saw one population expansion, and the second World War saw another.

An Ideal Suburban Environment With A Deep Respect for History.
Alongside the well preserved natural landscape and historic architecture are the conveniences of the modern American suburb. Just a short drive and you’re at a well-appointed grocery store, a clothing boutique, or the famed Blue Bell Inn. The original Inn was built in 1743 to provide shelter, food and drink to the hunters who frequented the area, and George Washington also found lodging there during the Revolution. Today, it is known as a modern, sophisticated restaurant with an amazing Sunday Brunch. Other not to miss restaurants include Panache, well-known for its wood-fired pizza, The Farmer’s Daughter, and Harry’s Blue Bell Tap Room.
