Join the Chester County Historical Society for a fun night of history and mystery at its First Annual Halloween Ball on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 6:30-10:30 PM.
Costumes are encouraged as the CCHS continues to celebrate its 125th anniversary with a live auction, music, and an open bar. Catering will be provided by Downingtown’s Jimmy Duffy, while Lamb McErlane is the event’s presenting sponsor.
CCHS has been a valued cultural resource since its founding in 1893. The nonprofit’s educational programs, museum and library collections, and exhibits tell stories of Chester County’s heritage and how they relate to our lives today.
Fundraisers like the Halloween Ball strengthen our ties to the past by ensuring that CCHS has the resources necessary to not only care for its collection of 80,0000 artifacts, 100,000 historic photographs, and 750,000 manuscripts but also to educate people of all ages.
From George Washington and the Battle of Brandywine to the Underground Railroad, Civil War, and Civil Rights, CCHS holds keys to the past. And it’s our duty to maintain them for future generations.
“CCHS is honored to celebrate 125 years as a community anchor,” said Allison Snavely, the CCHS’s Director of Development. “We wanted to host an event that would be unique, lively, and fun and raise the funds we need to sustain the Society. It takes a village, and I believe Chester County is the best village around.”
