Ivyland is a borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is known for one of the finest collections of Victorian Buildings in the state and most of it is on the National Register of Historic Places. The population was 1,041 at the 2010 census, a 111.6% increase from the 2000 census.
Ivyland is located at 40°12′32″N 75°4′19″W (40.208908, -75.071946).
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2), all land, making it the smallest borough in Bucks County.
The east end of Ivyland once was a separate village named Bradyville.
Ivyland was founded in 1873 by Edwin Lacey, a Quaker who was related to John Lacey, a brigadier general in the American Revolution. Edwin Lacey purchased 40 acres (16 ha) of land between Jacksonville Rd. (today's PA 332) and the Reading Company's future New Hope rail line, today's New Hope and Ivyland Railroad, which was completed to New Hope in 1891. It, as well as a large hotel which was planned for the town, was intended to serve the centennial of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
According to the borough's website, Edwin Lacey, who apparently was no botanist, named the town for the vast amount of "ivy" growing in the area, which turned out to be poison ivy.
Ivyland was incorporated as a borough in 1903.
Passenger rail service was cut off in 1952 by the Reading, which later sold that portion of the rail line to the New Hope & Ivyland R.R. in 1966.
