Town Tours and Village Walks
The 2013 Town Tour and Village Walks program closed on a high note with almost 300 people touring one family’s tribute to the Ice Industry in Chester County in East Bradford Township.   The Planning Commission website and our unofficial blog at worked well thanks to the efforts of Michael Manieri. Thank you Michael!

It was a difficult summer for outdoor tours between the heat and downpours. Despite the cancellation of three tours, something that never happened before, almost 1,500 people enjoyed the tours and are eagerly anticipating the tour in West Chester which will be given next June and the tour in East Nantmeal.  We have also asked Phoenixville to hold their tour of  churches again since only 89 of our stalwart supporters braved the almost 100 degree heat.
Special thanks to the Schuylkill River Heritage Center at Phoenixville, Hibernia County Park, West Chester HARB, East Pikeland Historical Commission and Historical Society, Kennett Borough Historical Commission, Historic Yellow Springs, The Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area, East Goshen Historical Commission, East Nantmeal Historical Commission and Society, West Whiteland Historical Commission, the National Iron and Steel Heritage Museum, and the East Bradford Historical Commission and the Stack Family for a memorable summer!!

And next summer?  Malvern Borough and its 125th Anniversary Celebration; the historic villages of Fricks Lock in East Coventry, Nantmeal Village in East Nantmeal and Birchrunville in West Vincent; and West Chester’s  southwest Quadrant are already on the schedule.
Don’t forget the 73rd Chester County Day is October 5th and promises to be a wonderful tour.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Tom Gavin at the Chester County Day Office: 610.431.5301 or .
