Grundy Museum preserves and interprets the legacy and experiences of the Grundy family during the late-Victorian Era (1885 –1929). An immaculately-preserved home containing many original family artifacts, and lush gardens situated on the Delaware River in Historic Bristol Borough welcome visitors and guests and serve as focal points for all. Through public and private tours, educational public programs, changing exhibitions, and private events, visitors and guests of all ages who experience the Grundys’ distinguished lifestyle are inspired by their timeless family values and contributions to local, state, and national affairs.


The Grundy Foundation, created in 1961 by the Last Will and Testament of Senator Joseph R. Grundy, maintains and operates the Senator’s familial home as a late Victorian-era museum; maintains and operates a community library; and, makes charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations, with a particular interest to those in Bristol Borough. Senator Grundy, a philanthropist with a solid commitment to his hometown, wanted to preserve the history and ensure the ongoing well-being of the residents of Bristol Borough and its surroundings in Bucks County.

The Museum and the Library, each named in honor of the Senator’s sister, Margaret, operate in support of the Grundys’ values: love of their hometown, civic participation, devotion to family, respect for hard work, and commitment to education.
