Trevose is a census-designated place of Bensalem and Lower Southampton Townships in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, United States, which is north of and borders northeastern Philadelphia.[2] Trevose was formerly part of Feasterville-Trevose, but was split into two separate CDPs for the 2010 census. U.S. 1 runs through the town as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike, but Trevose's main road is Brownsville Road. As of the 2010 census, Trevose had a population of 3,550.[4]

The community is named after the home of settler Joseph Growden and itself after Growden's homestead in England (Growden was Cornish, Trevose is from the Cornish word Trenfos for farm.).[5]
