The village's growth in the early 19th century was due to the opening of the Pennsylvania Canal passing through the village as a result canal-related businesses sprung up quickly, including a shipyard, mule stables, general store and several hotels; the most notable was Upper Black Eddy Inn this was later transformed into Chef Tell's Manor House, which closed in 2004 and demolished in 2010. The UBE portion of the canal was also known as Candy Bend. Origins of that name are unknown.Upper Black Eddy has two notable geographic features: 1: Ringing Rocks Park. This is a 4-acre boulder field of weathered Diabase rocks, some of which "ring" much like a bell when struck with a hammer. This park also includes Buck County's highest waterfall situated on High Rocks Creek. 2: Nockamixon Cliffs. 400 foot shale cliffs overlooking the Delaware River is located within the Delaware Canal State Park.Our United States tour itinerary planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
