Richboro, PA is “The bear to the end of time”. The town was lovingly called “The Bear” for many years, and also called Addisville if you wanted to be proper. The town had two taverns, the White Bear Hotel, and the Black Bear Hotel.
The White Bear Hotel was built by Enoch Addis in 1793. He advertised it to be fit for men or for beasts. The Black Bear Hotel was started by the Leedoms family and was first called “The sign of the Bare” in 1762.
Visitors soon came to know the place as “the bears” or “Beartown”, and soon the two little emerging villages merged, one side calling the town Addisville after Enoch of the White Bear or Leedomville after William’s Black Bear.
The popularity of both Inns kept going throughout the revolutionary war, and long afterward with Republicans holding their meetings in the White Bear, and the Democrats frequenting the Black Bear. In 1830 Enoch Addis passed away and the post office changed the town name to Richborough, which was shortened later for ease of use. Richboro is said to be named for Rich Thomas, the first postmaster here.
The Black Bear Hotel no longer exists, but the White Bear’s building was called the Spread Eagle Inn until just recently. Another local Richboro building is the Bennet-Search House, also called Hampton Hill, built in 1744. Richboro is a long loved, historic town and Hutchinson’s Plumbing loves to do business here.
