See Which Popular Chesco Communities Stretch Boundaries of Greater Philadelphia
Three Chester County towns are among the increasingly popular communities in the suburbs that are stretching the boundaries of Greater Philadelphia, writes Sandy Smith for Philadelphia Magazine.
Sadsburyville remains a bucolic crossroads despite developments that are popping up all around it. There are not many places to go in this charming town, other than Harry’s Hotdogs. The family-run eatery is housed in an early 1800s tavern and offers much more than just hot dogs. Harry’s Hotdogs has an extensive menu of sandwiches, salads, and burgers, as well as upscale entrées from all over.
Oxford is Chester County’s southwestern-most borough. Founded in the 18th century, the community retains its bustling crossroads character. The borough has plenty of things to offer to hold your attention, including two historic inns: the Oxford Inn, which has been welcoming patrons since 1868, and the Octoraro Hotel and Tavern, open since 1827.
Meanwhile, Elverson sits on the Chester-Berks county line but grew prosperous thanks to commerce in northwestern part of the county. The borough boasts the 1771 Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site, French Creek State Park, as well as state game lands.
