New plan calls for revival of BucksCo borough's downtown

Developers last week broke ground at the site formerly known as the American House at Perkasie—located at the corner of 7th and Market streets. The building was lost to a fire that tore through the downtown in 1988.

Developers Tom Skiffington and Dan Soliday are also constructing a building for commercial use at 1 N. 7th St. — next to the old American House. They expect to break ground in August.
