Durham Township, which is located at the extreme northeastern end of Bucks County Pennsylvania, along the Delaware River, contains approximately 6,410 acres (9 square miles), is one of the smallest of 31 townships into which Bucks County is divided. It is bounded by Williams Township, Northampton County on the north and the Delaware River on the east, Nockamixon Township to the south, and Springfield Township on the west.


Even though there were many settlers in Durham in the early 1700's it was not until June 3, 1775 that it was organized into a township. Prior to that date the entire area was owned by the Durham Iron Company. In 1726 the company erected a blast furnace in what is presently the Village of Durham, located along Cooks Creek in Durham. The site is now occupied by the Durham Grist Mill, a historical site on the National Historic Register, now owned by the township.


Durham Township also holds the distinction of being the location that Robert Durham built the first Durham Boat, the boat that was used by George Washington to cross the Delaware River.
