Chester County Historical Society Paperback / softback
Packed with useful information about historic Chester County, one of the original sections of Pennsylvania, this small, photo illustrated book introduces the distinctive land, buildings, furnishings and library which comprise the Chester County Historical Society in the old Quaker-settled town of West Chester.
Contents include the 1704 Brinton House, 1727 Collins Mansion, 1790 David Townsend house, and log constructed Hopper House and barn as well as local pottery, needlework, pictures, dishes, toys and furniture used in the county through the nineteenth century.
Since many American families have ancestors from this region, the library is an important resource for geneology and historical studies.
