Brandywine Battlefield, Chadds Ford

(3.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Brandywine Battlefield Historic Site is a National Historical Landmark. The historic park was owned and operated by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, on 50acre, near Chadds Ford, Delaware County, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is part of the site of the Battle of Brandywine fought on September 11, 1777, during the American Revolution. The Battle of Brandywine covered more than ten square miles, or 35,000 acres. However, the modern park only covers 50 acres which served primarily as the Continental encampment the two days prior to the battle. The battle was a major victory for the British and enabled them to capture the city of Philadelphia. Brandywine Battlefield Park became a Pennsylvania State Park in 1949 and a National Historic Landmark in 1961.To the north, another part of the battlefield is maintained by Birmingham Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania as "Battlefield of the Brandywine Park," or "Sandy Hollow Heritage Park." Much of the afternoon's fighting took place between Birmingham Friends Meetinghouse and Dilworthtown.

  • Perfect for a quick visit and history lesson of George Washington's battle failures.😂. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteer staff. Also the site of a beautiful 240 year old sycamore tree.
  • Very interesting tour from a knowledgeable staff.
  • great and a fun historical battlefield in pa.But they try to make it look like a national park and one of the houses wasn't the best restored to what it looked like at least on the inside the outside was fine
  • Historical battlefield and cemetery.
  • Great Tour, Great folks giving tour. The two buildings plus the meeting house were very interesting. I would recommend this tor for small to large scout troops and school groups.
