Thank you to everyone who participated in the annual Town Tours and Village Walks Program in 2014. Over 2,700 visitors attended the tours that were presented by the 300 volunteers from the participating Historical Commissions and Organizations from throughout Chester County. It was a truly great summer. A number of the tours broke attendance records and the hundreds of hours that go into developing the information and organization required for the program was much evident! We even had our first trolley tour!!
We are hard at work getting ready for next summer's tours which will focus on the Underground Railroad in Chester County and several important township anniversaries. There is also work starting on recognizing 300 Years of Iron Making in Pennsylvania in 2016 and the 240th anniversary of the Campaign of 1777 in 2017.
The 2015 schedule should be posted around April 1st so stay tuned!
