Many individuals and businesses have influenced the revitalization of Kennett Square. But few have had a role in the process as significant as Nancy Mohr. The void left by her passing last month at age 88 will be significant, writes Tara Smith for the Daily Local News.

Mohr spent decades shaping Kennett Square in fundamental ways. From her early involvement in the borough’s revitalization efforts, she had a larger, brighter, and more sustainable vision for Kennett Square.

Her commitment to championing the good and to rallying others to collaborate in the spirit of positivity helped transform State Street from a run-down, vacant shadow into its current, vibrant self.

Along with architect Jeff Norman, attorney Scudder Stevens, and businesswoman Donna Hood, Mohr created the Kennett Square Revitalization Task Force nonprofit in the late 1990s. It has since become Historic Kennett Square. The nonprofit — which engaged businesses, investors, homeowners, and other nonprofits — was instrumental in the revitalization efforts.

“Nancy was a huge force, and very emphatic in the most charming way,” said Historic Kennett Square’s Community Engagement Manager Claire Murray.
