Upper Black Eddy, PA

A Magical Wonder To Experience

Two notable geographic features of Upper Black Eddy are Ringing Rocks Park and Nockamixon Cliffs. The park is a 4-acre boulder field of weathered Sonorous Stones, some of which “ring” much like a bell when struck with a hammer. This park also includes Bucks County’s highest waterfall situated on High Rocks Creek. The Cliffs are 400 foot shale cliffs overlooking the Delaware River and are located within the Delaware Canal State Park.

The unincorporated village of Upper Black Eddy is located in northern Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 58 miles west southwest of New York City and 45 miles north of Philadelphia. Upper Black Eddy is officially part of Bridgeton Township which connects with the Borough of Milford, Hunterdon County, New Jersey via the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission’s free Upper Black Eddy-Milford Bridge over the Delaware River.

Upper Black Eddy originates from the Black family who operated a hotel at this point of the Delaware River and did share part of its unique name with the former village of Lower Black Eddy, now known as Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania. The village’s growth in the early 19th century was due to the opening of the Pennsylvania Canal passing through the village. As a result canal-related businesses sprung up quickly, including a shipyard, mule stables, general store, and several hotels.
