Once one of the largest townships in Bucks County, Rockhill was founded in 1740. In 1890, the area was separated and became East and West Rockhill Townships. The communities are renowned for their scenic beauty and many historic sites, including covered bridges, mills, one-room schoolhouses, and churches. The area is home to historic Ridge Valley, Almont, Naceville, and the Lake House Inn. A well-known recreational area, it contains both Tochickon Creek and Nockamixon State Parks. The townships even have their famous residents in Lee Felbinger, author of three books about the Lone Ranger, and Ruth Richards of the Georgia Peaches, portrayed in the movie A League of their Own. Grand View Hospital, which has played an integral part in the community since its founding in 1913, continues to manage the health care of the surrounding communities.
