The Chester County History Center has been recognized by PA Museums, a statewide museum association with 350 members across the Commonwealth, with this year’s Institutional Achievement Award for its new exhibit, “Becoming Chester County.”
From the arrival of William Penn and contact with indigenous people in the 1600s to today, “Becoming Chester County” traces the history of our area and its influence on the American landscape.
The 5,000-square-foot exhibit showcases more than 600 artifacts through beautifully designed exhibits and interactive, hands-on displays, where visitors of all ages and abilities can learn about the stories of daily life, work, and civic engagement in Chester County.
The exhibit is open to visitors Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9:30 AM-4:30 PM.
“It is an honor to have our team’s hard work recognized alongside amazing organizations such as the Museum of the American Revolution and Heinz History Center,” said Conor Hepp, president of Chester County History Center. “Our new core exhibitions truly are a sight to see.”
Chester County History Center has been committed for 130 years to the diverse community of Chester County, the preservation of its history, and the continued efforts to be a resource for new history makers.
