Town Tours and Village Walks

Town Tours and Village Walks at Historic Yellow Springs: Then and NowAt Yellow Springs, we will be exploring the “then and now” of our village. In 1810, Yellow Springs was described as a “perfection of landscape”. As this unique place unfolded, one could see how the perfection of landscape became the common thread woven over the centuries that entwined the people and provided the background for this village to move forward in distinct historic eras. With nearly 300 years of documented history, this village was a Lenape Indian site, a health spa with healthful mineral springs, a Revolutionary War Hospital, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Country School, and Good News Productions movie studios.

Much has changed; much has stayed the same. Today the village invites visitors to see and learn about this regeneration, reinvention and recycling. We will look at the village and its endurance, perseverance, and tenacity then, now and into the future.

Town Tours and Village Walks is sponsored by the Chester County Board of Commissioners, the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau, Chester County Historic Preservation Network and the Chester County Historical Society. For more information, contact Karen Marshall, Heritage Preservation Coordinator, at 610 344-6923 or kmarshall@chesco.org for a brochure.
