Half-Moon Inn, also known as the Court Inn and Thorton's Tavern, is a historic inn and tavern located at Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The original 1 1/2-story, stone and frame building was built in 1733. Subsequent additions occurred in 1740, 1757, and 1792. The portion at 101 Court Street is a 2 1/2-story, 3 bay, stone structure. It was restored in 1965 by the Newtown Historic Association. The portion at 105 Court Street has a stuccoed stone first story, with a timber frame second story added between 1825 and 1840. The building housed an inn and tavern until 1818, during which time Newtown served as the county seat. It houses the headquarters of the Newtown Historic Association and is open as a local history museum. The holdings include a special collection on early American folk painter, Edward Hicks (1780-1849).
