Christian C. Sanderson Museum

Though he lived in a small town, Christian Carmack Sanderson was a true renaissance man of the late 19th century and early 20th century. He served his community as a schoolteacher, but his interests were wide and varied—he could also aptly be called a historian, musician, and radio personality. The Christian C. Sanderson Museum displays many of Sanderson's historical artifacts, as well as his personal belongings.

  • The Building: Eight rooms of Sanderson's country home, filled with artifacts and displays

  • Permanent Mainstay: To commemorate Sanderson's friendship with the NC Wyeth family, the museum displays several photos and paintings, including a portrait of Sanderson painted by Andrew Wyeth himself.

  • Don't Miss: Sanderson was a collector of what he called "living history;" visitors can take a peek at sand collected from the digging of the Panama Canal as well as melted ice from the South Pole

  • Hidden Gem: Artifacts related to national history include letters written from Civil War soldiers to Sanderson, as well as cannonballs that were found in the area

  • For the Kids: Kids can tour the museum via a scavenger hunt for specific artifacts, such as a Victrola record player and easter eggs from 1886

  • Praise: "I spent two hours at this museum without regret, well maybe one, I would have liked to spend more time. There is so much to see." — Delaware County Daily Times

This looked like 'just a house' and we didn't expect to see much. But my husband and I were blown away by the collections! This place is jam packed to the brim with memorabilia, cool stuff, historical stuff, civil war stuff, music stuff, art stuff, I can't even describe it all. Christian S... Read More

Took the kids today for Summer Stories and was reminded of how much I love this place! A must see for anyone who is interested in Chester County history in general and the Wyeths specifically. Many original Wyeths and amazing artifacts.
