From the August 2003 Issue of Nouveau Magazine

“New Hope – what a great name for a town! Particularly when, as in this case, its origin symbolized fresh dreams. In 1790, when Benjamin Parry’s grist mill burnt to the ground, he rebuilt it and named it “The New Hope Mill.” The towns people of what was then known as Coryell’s Ferry, admired the new name so much they adopted it for their village – and New Hope, PA was born.

They were a cocky bunch, full of hope and confidence in the future, but even the most imaginative among them couldn’t have forecast that New Hope would become a creative colony of artists and writers. And home to one of the country’s finest regional theatres. And a bohemian, laid-back spot in the decades following D-Day, that would wind up being a mecca for art and craft galleries, eclectic shops, antique shows and restaurants and B&B’s that has a national and international appeal.

The legend of New Hope continues and the Wedgwood Collection of Inns is the archetypal American bed and breakfast inn…"

NEW HOPE, Pa. (March 2, 2004) - Pennsylvania's Bucks County is famous for its beautiful color in the fall and the views of its hills overlooking the Delaware River. Hot-air balloon rides this time of year are at a premium.  It's famous for its covered bridges, and people come from miles away to take driving tours of the old oak structures, complete with windows on either side.

Well now you can add golf to the list of items making this Southeastern section of Pennsylvania famous. Jericho National Golf Club, which opened just four years ago, is quickly becoming a classic. It is getting praise by the pound, and it even is getting mentioned in the same breath as some American classics.

We recommend New Hope's 1870 Wedgwood Inn.


The 1870 Wedgwood Inn was “Voted Best of Philly” 2005 – 2006 as a Bed and Breakfast Inn by the readers and editors of Philadelphia Magazine.


The 1870 Wedgwood Inn can be seen on the cover of

American Style Top 25 Art Destinations, June 2005

Top winners in the Small Cities and Towns category include
New Hope/Lahaska, PA. at No. 1.

"New Hope, on the banks of the Delaware River in bucolic Bucks County, carries a rich artistic pedigree.  It was here more than 100 years ago that landscape painter William Langston Lathrop set down roots and encouraged other artists to follow him.  The artists never stopped coming, and neither did arts lovers, who by lat count have close to 50 art galleries, antiques shops and specialty boutiques along New Hope's four  main streets, side streets and alleyways to keep them busy...

HOT SPOTS: Sculpture installations here, there and everywhere around town -- all part of the annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, which opens April 30 and remains on display until March 2006. 

DON'T MISS:  The 12th annual New Hope Outdoor Arts & Crafts Festival, October 1-2.  A much anticipated event, it features more than 150 juried artists from all over the country."

 "Finding New Hope Again" 

"This small Pennsylvania river town melds its history - from 18th century village to '60's artist colony to trendy getaway destination - into a comfortable whole....The Wedgwood Inn is a two minute walk from Main Street - and Lambertville, New Jersey, a sister river town on the east bank of the Delaware River. Rooms are appointed with an eclectic mix of Victorian furnishings, Wedgwood china and original art...our first pick for lodging in New Hope"

 "A Place Called New Hope: From Dicey to Pricey, A Pennsylvania River Town Just Keeps Rolling Along"  by Anita Huslin

"New Hope is probably one of the most popular destinations for antique fondlers and gallery browsers along the scenic Delaware River, and it's an easy drive from Washington on I-95 up River Road....This time of year it's actually good, to begin a visit to New Hope with a stop just before you get there, at Washington Crossing where George Washington's renowned trip across the Delaware River turned the tide of the Revolutionary War... New Hope is a small, just a mile square, but it's elbow-to-elbow with small Colonial era homes and houses made of river rock and shale from local quarries.  As the sun goes down twinkling lights welcome and though the village is small, it's more hospitable than ever.  It beckons visitors to walk and peruse.  Later we check into the Wedgwood Inn and find ourselves checking into the old Carriage House of the Victorian that is now one of the most prominent Bed and Breakfasts in town... The Wedgwood Inn is a 2 minute walk from Main Street which especially in summer months when crowds grow, offers a little more quiet on it's 2 acre setting..."
