The village of Shelly, more commonly known as Shelly Station in its heyday, is nestled in the northwestern corner of Richland Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania between Quakertown and Coopersburg. Route 309, a major thoroughfare, divides two thirds of the village to the East and one third of the village to the West. In coordination with a local author, Ms. Jill Ruch, Appalachian Mountain Club and Richland Township worked to install a historical walking signage project along the Upper Bucks Rail Trail about the history of Shelly, PA. The interpretive signs start at the Upper Bucks Rail Trail trailhead located at Richland Township Fire & Rescue (64 Shelly Rd, Quakertown, PA 18951) and continue on the North and South sides of E. Cherry Road. Signs include stories related to community, commerce, and placemaking.
