Under this bridge flows the Aquetong Creek. This body of water and the Delaware River were the main reasons why people chose to settle here. Aquetong Creek flows all year long. It is fed primarily by a natural spring, located two miles to the west, which produces 2,000 gallons of water per minute. The strong stream flow created by the spring supplied the energy to turn the waterwheels that powered the many mills once located along the creek. These mills and enterprises made New Hope the foremost industrial town in Bucks County in the 1800s. Aquetong Creek is also known as the Great Springs Creek and Ingham Creek.
