Chester County, Pennsylvania is as rich in history as its soil has been since the beginning of recorded time. One of the first counties established by William Penn, its name is actually derived from the town of Cheshire in England, hearkening to the early English settlements of the 17th century. William Penn spoke of the remarkable likeness to England and the nature of the beautiful countryside that offered so much promise for those seeking religious freedom and a way to build a new life.

Today, Chester County is probably best remembered for the battles that were fought here, and the famous troops and war leaders that have left their indelible marks on the war-scarred landscape. Though much history has preceded and followed, it is the images of George Washington and his troops coming over the hill that many who hold the area dear, consider a most important footnote in the written history of the area.

Chester County has long drawn on the beauty and charm of its natural setting, bringing visitors, homebuyers and businesses to the banks of the Brandywine River Valley. While there has been much development and growth, great pains have been taken to preserve many of the early historic landmarks and buildings, providing future generations with a sense of the history of early Chester County. Additionally, many residents and businesses have supported the preservation of "open space", in a continuing endeavor to ensure that Chester County will remain beautiful for years to come.

Chester County's remarkable beauty has come to inspire such celebrated Chester County artists as, Richard Bollinger, Peter Sculthorpe and Andrew Wyeth, winner of the 1963 Presidential Freedom Award and the first living American artist to be elected to Britain's Royal Academy. Chester County's quaint charm has long been captured through the eyes of these artists and has contributed to a unique verve and interpretation of the area, an area that will, no doubt, continue to be an inspiration.
