Pulitzer prize-winning author James Michener (1907-1997) was born in Doylestown and now Doylestown has The Michener Art Museum! Doylestown is a small burrough with a population of approximately 8,000 residents.

Michener wrote dozens of long, epic historical fiction novels about major places, and at least 14 of them were made into feature films. Examples are Texas and Hawaii. You can find Michener’s bestselling books at most any public library.

While you are in Bucks County, consider taking a hot air balloon ride to get a slow, aerial view of this postcard-pretty vintage town.

The Michener Art Museum is the fourth stop on our Pennsylvania Trail!
