Boro of Perkasie, PA Perkasie Borough (Bucks County, PA) takes its name from the Lenni Lenape word "Poekskossing," meaning "where hickory nuts were cracked." The borough originated as a village occupying part of the 11,462-acre Manor of Perkasie granted to William Penn. The manor was laid out and surveyed in 1708 and included most of Hilltown and West Rockhill townships. Spurred by construction of the North Penn Railroad in the late 1850s Perkasie became a boom town and a trade center for the surrounding villages and farms.
