_Raven Rock is a small hamlet nestled between the base of a stone cliff and the Delaware River. In its earliest days, it was known as Saxtonville, and it was controlled by a single landowner. The Delaware Canal, the bed of the old Pennsylvania Railroad track and the Daniel Bray Highway all ran between Raven Rock and the river, and the town grew and prospered with these lines of transportation. In the twentieth century, it became known for its houses, Bull’s Island State Park and beautiful bridges, which were used by soldiers in training for exercise during World War II. Discover how historic Raven Rock evolved from a quarry town to the artist community of today through this collection of fascinating vignettes by members of its local historical community.
