Founded as one of the oldest municipalities in Bucks County in 1711, Warminster Township played a key role in both the Revolutionary War and the development of the U.S. space program.
On May 11, 1778, it was the site of the Battle of the Billet, near the town of Hatboro, then commonly known as "the Billet," a short form of the name of its widely known Crooked Billet Tavern. The battle was the culminating event in a six months campaign to prevent the British from receiving food and other supplies from the rich farming district north and northwest of Philadelphia. It was the only independent campaign assigned to the State Militia during the Revolution, and it demonstrated the futility of putting untrained civilian conscripts against seasoned veterans.
The now closed Naval Air Development Center, at Street and Jacksonville roads, was where NASA trained its Mercury, Gemini and Apollo program astronauts in high-g force flight on what was then the world’s largest a centrifuge housed at the facility. The site is now home to the Warminster Community Park industrial center, the Bucks County morgue and crime lab, and Stormtracker 6, the Doppler weather radar for WPVI-TV, Channel 6 in Philadelphia.
