From now until December 31st, visit the Many Nations | Chester County exhibit at the Chester County Historical Society.
From our Summer Fun Guide
Learn about the people who made Chester County the name that it is today with Many Nations | Chester County. Running until the end of this year, the exhibit looks to portray the stories of prominent county figures. Starting with the first contact between the Lenape and European immigrants in the 1600s, Chester County has become part of “a global community,” according to the historical society. By 1810, residents represented over 10 countries, and by 1930, that number rose to 40.
Today, Chester County sees a plethora of diverse residents, measured by more than six languages and six continents.
“This melting pot has not always been easy and inclusion has not always been equal. Yet the human spirit prevailed and continues to make this a vibrant place” — Chester County Historical Society.
