Adopt A Book

Pallet of historic Deed BooksThe Bucks County Recorder of Deeds has introduced the Adopt a Book Program to save historic Deed Books, some of which date back to 1684. From documents signed by William Penn to post civil war documents printed on paper made in part with recycled Union uniforms, these books are ink-faded, stained, frayed and in some cases, even moldy. While the documents have all been microfilmed, the books are still requested on a regular basis. (Want to see the books in person? Scroll below to find a list of upcoming Book Tours, where you can get a first hand look at the flair of the W in William and many more historically significant people, places and dates.)

The Recorder of Deeds is dedicated to restoring the deed books and preserving the history of Bucks County landowners. To that end, the office is having 700 of the oldest books treated and rebound, which will add up to 250 years to the life of the documents. 

The Adopt a Book program invites the community to become part of the process. For as little as $10, Friends of Bucks County can Adopt a Deed book continue the preservation of history in Bucks County.
