--------------------------------------

Historic Morrisville Society is a 501 C-3 non-profit, all volunteer organization. Our mandate is to preserve Summerseat, a National Historic Landmark for future generations and to educate people about the history of this country and the part Summerseat played in that history. HMS raises all our own funding, we do not receive local, state, or federal funding to run Summerseat. HMS was founded in 1976 when Summerseat was no longer needed as office space for the Morrisville School District and was going to be sold, so the people of Morrisville and Yardley united, formed the Historic Morrisville Society and purchased Summerseat and applied to have it declared a Registered National Historic Landmarks .
At the turn of the last century there was talk about tearing Summerseat down. Its history had been forgotten by most. But a paper was written for the Bucks County Historic Society unearthing Summerseat’s role in the history of American and the world, and the people of Morrisville saved Summerseat. The people of Morrisville would benefit by saving the only open Space left in town next to one of America’s most important houses. Having this house with a Pocket Park next to it can only add to the desirability to live in and to visit Morrisville.
