The preservation of the historic character
of Chester County is a well-appreciated and widely supported
effort. For old and new residents alike, the charm and beauty
of our historic landscapes and streetscapes is a source of
pride. But, the preservation of our resources, above and
below ground, is an everyday effort across the county. Of
the tens of thousands of historic resources countywide, few
are not at risk. Risks, of course, vary from the potential
loss of the historic context of a resource, to the loss of
a resource’s integrity, and to the loss of the resource itself—demolition
being an irrevocable proposition.
The CCHPN works to bring people together and give them the
information they need to preserve their neighborhoods and communities
of Chester County. Please consider
joining the effort.
