Where is Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA? 

Doylestown is a borough and the county seat of Bucks County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It is located 27 miles (43 km) north of Philadelphia.

Doylestown's origins date to 1745 when William Doyle obtained a license to build a tavern on what is now the northwest corner of Main and State Street. Known for years as "William Doyle's Tavern", its strategic location at the intersection of the road linking Swede's Ford (Norristown) and Coryell's Ferry (New Hope) and the road linking Philadelphia and Easton - allowed the hamlet to blossom into a village. The first church was erected in 1815.Wikipedia
