Visit the Chris Sanderson Museum and several Chichester Events coming

                The Brandywine River Museum about 1920 when it was the Hoffman Mill. View from the creek.
  I would like to thank all the people that come to my show and the Ridley Creek State Park last week. It was a great time and the money went to the Colonial Plantation a Great Cause!
Word is out that the Morton Homestead in Prospect Park on Lincoln Ave. may be opening soon! It has been closed for several years. It is the oldest house in Penna.
