The mission of the African American Historical and Cultural Society of Bucks County is to research, document and educate others on the rich history of African American’s in Bucks County.
Our vision is to generate more interest in that history and become a valuable resource for exploring this diasporic legacy. Long-term goals include building organizational capacity, while forging lasting partnerships and collaborations.
Harriet Ross Tubman Monument
One of the hallmarks of our organization is the completion of the Harriet Ross Tubman Monument dedicated in 2006. This monument stands six feet, five inches tall, without an approximately four-foot pedestal and points northward. The monument stands as a grand sculpture along the banks of the Delaware River, in scenic Bristol Borough’s Lions Park. The anchor and significance of this product is the artist’s James Gafgen’s magnificent bronze sculpting. View the Harriet Ross Tubman monument installation & dedication ceremony.
