Hulmeville School, Main Street

I attended school at Hulmeville Elementary which is now a day care center. The school bus would drive up my driveway to pick me up. Hulmeville is on the Neshaminy creek down Bellevue Avenue from Penndel (South Langhorne). Some of the creed side residences flood and often can not be re built. Beechwood Cemetery is across the Neshaminy up on a hill overlooking the town. Joseph Canby is buried there along with other familiar names to the area. The original mill is still there and I believe is still being used as a flea market or antique business. The town has not really changed much in the last 50 years, due in most part, because of it's location. It is in a hollow of sorts.
