William Mulhern's Paintings

Child on shoulder

A number of William Mulhern’s paintings portrayed Taylorsville, Pennsylvania, now known as Washington Crossing, and the nearby Bucks County and riverside areas. The sleepy village was along the Delaware River, in what is now Washington Crossing State Park.

The property was purchased by the Commonwealth for creation of the park, and several of the houses, including his, were moved farther in from the river, where they still stand.

This painting above, featuring a pink sunset, is believed to portray the artist and one of his children. Others are seen below, photographed by Jim Alexander at various locations. Sadly, not all of the paintings were able to be photographed, and a few no longer exist.
