Summary: Bolton Mansion is an historical monument located in Bucks County. It was originally the home of Phineas Pemberton, founding member of the Fallsington Quaker Meeting and close friend to Governor William Penn. A prominent leader in the new colony, Pemberton's message of community involvement is still apparent in the "Friends of Bolton Mansion", a non-profit volunteer organization.
