Tinicum Twp, Bucks County, PA

Historic hamlet [1] in the extreme northwestern corner of Tinicum Township on the Delaware Division Canal and River Road (Route 32, formerly 326) between Uhlerstown and Upper Black Eddy. A canal lock there at the foot of the "six mile level" is called Lodi Lock. Lodi is a city in the province of Milan, Italy, where, in a great battle fought May 10, 1796, Napoleon gained a victory of the Austrians hat made him master of Lombardy. It is probably that the name was given to the Bucks County hamlet by some Italian immigrants from Milan who settled and lived there during and after the construction of the canal.
