Head northeast on Interstate 95 from Philadelphia for around 30 minutes and you will run into the charming community of Fairless Hills, Pa. Due to its close proximity to Van Sciver Lake and many big cities in the tri-state area, many residents who live in Fairless Hills apartments for rent enjoy their way of life. According to information from City-Data, the city has seen a small shift in population from 2000 to 2010, mostly because of its higher-than-average median household income and low crime rate that is very attractive to commuters and growing families. Because of everything that this thriving community has to offer, it makes sense that the city has and will continue to see growth in the commercial and business sectors.
The areas around Fairless Hills and Bucks County have a long and distinguished history that date back to the late 1600s, when William Penn came into the area and began to build up the state that would later become his namesake. Many people in the Mid-Atlantic and New England region soon followed many other pioneers who were heading westward due to the close proximity of these small towns to everything that the larger cities had to offer, and still do to this day. Today, the city is home to more than 8,400 residents, according to information from the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau. Many Pennsylvania residents are enjoying calling Fairless Hills home because of its affordability, as well. According to City-Data, the city's cost of living index is not much more than the national average, despite its close location to one of the nation's most populated cities.
Because Fairless Hills developed into a community centered around the manufacturing sector of U.S. Steel, it makes sense that many of the homes here have historic architecture. One of the structures that many area residents take great pride in is the Sotcher Farmhouse, an early Greek Revival archway house that was once home to John Sotcher, the chief steward of William Penn's manor.
