Levittown is a community in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States, within the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Levittown was planned and built by Levitt & Sons. The majority of the land on which it is built was purchased in 1951. The homes were moderately priced and required only a low down payment.
Construction of Levittown began in February 1952, soon after completion of Levittown, New York, located on Long Island. Levittown, Pennsylvania was the second Levittown built by William J. Levitt, who is often credited as the creator of the modern American suburb.The Presurfer
