Levittown is a fascinating part of northern Pennsylvania with unique history. Unlike most cities that sprout up as people move in and build their homes, Levittown was a planned community. This means that each of the town’s neighborhoods, streets, schools, and churches were designed by William and Alfred Levitt. Construction of the town lasted from 1952 to 1958, with 17,311 homes built and families that moved in immediately. Since then, Levittown has undergone some slight changes, but has largely remained the idyllic community the Levitt brothers had planned at the outset.
