Cool Little Art Town on the Delaware.

A place Salvidor Dali used to hang out in and George Thorogood played regularly in. A place you can buy a claymore sword, potions, a 10 foot rooster, whips , chains, incense, and peppermints. One of the coolest places in Buck County right on the Delaware River a little north of where Washington crossed the Delaware.



I’m President John Tyler


I became president after the assassination of William Harrison. My whole administration walked out on me on September 11th. All except Daniel Webster who was settling the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with the Barring Brothers Bank which were bribing him to create the Third National Bank. I refused to make the bank and my administration walked out on me on the anniversary of Alexander Hamilton becoming the first Secretary of the Treasury and creating The First National Bank. The first and second Banks had their charters expire because they were dominated by English bankers like Baring Brother’s Bank. September 11th has always been an important date in American economic history.
