Highton is a populated place situated along the border of Buckingham and Solebury townships in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.[2] The small settlement is located along Street Road (which runs along the township line) at its intersection with Ridge Road. As the latter road's name implies, it is located along a ridge (at an estimated elevation of 220 feet (67 m) above sea level[1]) between Pidcock Creek and Curls Run about three and a half miles (5.6 km) southeast of New Hope. There are a few houses located around the settlement, the remainder consists of farms and properties containing large houses over rolling terrain.[3]
