Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum
Open Sundays 1-4 during the months of May thru October, the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead Museum is a historic goldmine. Step back in time to visit to the original home of John Holcombe, built in 1711, and an authentic farm village. The main barn is full of antique farm implements, with a rustic woodworking shop upstairs. The building and the herb garden are surrounded by the buildings of an early agricultural community; a general store, a functioning blacksmith, a post office, a print shop, a barber shop, and a doctors office, all untouched by the passage of time. Staffed by dedicated, knowledgeable volunteers, the farmstead is an amazing piece of living history that children and adults alike will fall in love with.
The Haas Gallery is a spot where local meets worldwide. Gordon Haas is an exceptional painter, reimagining the beautiful landscapes of Bucks County as well as Italy and France.

The originals and prints come in a variety of sizes, which make them a great deal for any space and any budget. The Haas Gallery shows many examples of how talented and knowledgeable the owner Gordon Haas is as a landscape artist, and his friendly demeanor and attitude make the experience all the more worthwhile.
