  • "THE SIXTIES! THE AGE OF AQUARIUS IN CHESTER COUNTY "was done during the visit. Touched the sex when I was in elementary school when I was born and I was born in the early 1960, is very interesting. Permanent way could see the wall clocks were made long ago in West Chester.

  • I attended the lecture about the Sharples Separator at Greystone last night. What a wonderful evening! The speakers were very knowledgeable and the venue was perfect! I look forward to next Tuesday evening's lecture.
  • Hats off to the genealogy source that the CCHS provides in the community. The first Coatesville/Downingtown Swisher/Troupe to arrive in Chester County was in 1875 coming from Berks Co for work in the steel mills. I have found numerous documents over the years following the paths of the descendants. The Swisher family first arrived at the Port of Philadelphia in 1732 sailing from Switzerland. Thank you.

  • So much history of the county to see and so little time
  • This was the best exhibit of clothing over the years! Was impressed how it was set up as the years progressed. Exceptionally well done!
