  • Chester County Historical Society
    Since its founding in 1893, the Chester County Historical Society has painstakingly cataloged nearly every facet of local life—from government records to fashionable dresses of the day. It's no wonder, then, that its 300-year-old collection of artifacts, photographs, and reference volumes takes up an entire 56,000-square-foot downtown History Center. Inside, visitors can find rotating exhibits on topics such as Civil War history and historic paper and textile crafts. Additionally, the permanent galleries are home to handcrafted grandfather clocks and furniture and fashion from the early 1700s to the 20th century. When museum staff aren't organizing the collections or leading educational workshops, they can help unearth a person's family history in the library and photo archives, which feature more than 80,000 historical and modern prints.

  • The Wharton Esherick Museum
    Wharton Esherick, famed artist and craftsman, was oft heard to say, "If it isn't fun, it isn't worth doing." He brought that idea to every aspect of his life, and especially to his work. The Wharton Esherick Museum celebrates these achievements, housing more than 200 of his original works, from wooden sculpture and furniture to interior designs and even architecture, within the walls of the building that served as his home and studio. The museum describes his legacy not so much as a style of art or shape of chair, but rather as the very existence of an industry for artisinal, hand-crafted wood items bearing non-traditional designs. Esherick's ever-evolving sense of play lies just as much in the museum's bones as its exhibits. He continually expanded on his house and studio throughout his life, using different materials and styles to expand the home to suit his latest visions or needs. Atop the stone walls of the studio space, for instance, he built a bedroom, raising the bed to the exact height of the window; he liked to watch deer frolic and sunrises spread across the tapestry of farms in the valley below. Later, he expanded his living quarters with a kitchen built inside a rounded tower which he affectionately called "his silo." His home ultimately became a historic landmark, and then the museum itself.
