Levittown in Bucks County is famously among the nation's first planned communities, purchased in 1951 and assembled by the same Levitt & Sons who planned Levittowns in New Jersey, New York and four other states and refused to sell to nonwhite buyers (the Pennsylvania neighborhood was integrated by the Myers family in 1957). The Pennsylvania community included more than 17,000 homes by 1958, as well as swimming pools, baseball fields, and shopping centers. Today Levittown is home to more than 52,000 residents, and homes sell at a median price near $225,000. These three homes are listed under $250,000.
