Thank you to all our supporters of the 2017 Antiques Show. Please continue to check back for upcoming information on our 2018 show.

The Chester County Historical Society (CCHS) is widely respected as one of the Commonwealth’s premier history museums and educational centers, playing an important role in history education, cultural diversity and economic impact for the Southeastern Pennsylvania region. In its 35th year, the Chester County Antiques Show is CCHS’s largest community and fundraising event.

Chaired by Francis "Fran" B. Jacobs II. and Chuck & June Piola, the show will be held from April 7-9, 2017 at the Phelps School.
