Happy 100th Anniversary Dublin!

The year was 1912. William Howard Taft was president, and New Mexico and Arizona became the 47th and 48th states. The British steamer Titanic sank in the North Atlantic. There was no federal income tax. And in September of that year, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the Borough of Dublin was born. If the group of freeholders who petitioned the courts for incorporation as a borough were to return today, they would probably recognize very little of the Dublin they once knew.

September 3, 2012 will mark Dublin’s Centennial – 100th Anniversary – as an incorporated Borough in Pennsylvania, and in celebration of the momentous occasion, Dublin Borough is inviting locals to join in the fun with a jam-packed line-up of events:
