Ivyland Historic District is a national historic district located at Ivyland, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The district includes 133 contributing buildings in the borough of Hulmeville. It is a primarily residential district, with a number of buildings representative of Late Victorian styles. They date between 1873 and 1931 and reflect Ivyland's development as a planned railroad suburb. The majority of the residential buildings are 2 1/2-story, frame structures with gable roofs, front porches, and irregular plans. One notable non-residential building is "The Temperance House" hotel (c. 1875).[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
