Architectural Gem of Doylestown, PA>
At the southeast corner of East State Street and South Main Street in Doylestown is Lenape Hall
One of the most distinctive buildings in Doylestown, the building was designed by architects Addison Hutton & Thomas Cernea and dedicated November 17th 1874.
It originally provided Doylestown with a large town hall for public meetings, a concentrated store area and a much-needed indoor market.
In the early 20th century, the Strand Theater showed movies here until the building of the New Strand Theater, in 1925. In effect it was a Victorian shopping mall, which had a strong influence on the town’s commercial identity.
