The village of Feasterville was located at what is now the confluence of Street Road (Route 132), Buck Road (Route 532), Bridgetown Pike (Route 213), and Bustleton Pike.

The most enduring glimpse into the area's past is the Buck Hotel (circa 1735), a major stopover at this busy crossroads which served as a relay point for travelers between Philadelphia to the south, and Trenton and New York City to the northeast. It wasn't until nearly a century after the Buck Hotel was built that the Feasterville post office was established, 1831.

Feasterville was one of two major community identities by the 1920s, the other being Southampton. Focus on these centers rather than the township as a whole was the impetus for then Southampton's division into two separate political subdivision in 1928 — Upper and Lower Southampton.

Looking at Feasterville/Feasterville Hieghts today we see mainly a residential neighborhood of approximately 550 single family homes built primarily during the 1940s and 1950s. However, one or more homes can be found that were built in each decade spanning more than a century, from the late 19th century through the earl 21st.
