Marshallton--At the Center of Chester County

Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

This week's Town Tour of Chester County, Pennsylvania, visited BlacksmithMarshallton Village, one of the most charming villages in the County. Founded in 1731, back when Chester County included all of what later became Delaware County, this village was considered the geographic center of the County. (above, serpentine stone house)


Merchant of MenaceIt was the home of botanist Humphry Marshall (1722-1801) and an important stop on the freight road from Lancaster to Philadelphia because it was toll free, unlike the Lancaster Road. There are still many homes preserved along the Strasburg Road,(Merchant of Menace shop on Strasburg) and as witnessed by the heavy traffic, still a popular route.


Popular places for visiting are the Bradford Quaker Meeting House ( 1st picture below), the Martin's Tavern preservation spot, and the Marshallton Inn and the Four Dogs Tavern (second picture--great burgers!).
