CCHS will be a Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce Gallery Walk host once again on Friday, October 7, 2016. We are excited to welcome artist Nicole Snider, a visual artist and public school art teacher in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Click here to learn more about Nicole. 


CCHS is also hosting a signing of Arcadia Publishing's new book on West Chester during First Friday and Gallery Walk celebrations.

The book is part of Arcadia's Images of Modern America series, and contains almost 200 photographs, mostly in color, of the town. A book signing will take place on Friday, October 7, 2016, at the Chester County Historical Society beginning at 6:00pm. 

Melissa and Bruce Mowday will be at the Historical Society to sign books. This is the second book co-authored by the daughter/father writers. They also researched and wrote a history of Caln Township. www.mowday.com


Also on October 7, we will show winning documentaries from last year's Regional National History Day competition, and have a History Slam (two minute talks on local topics). The program will run from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. We hope to inspire new students, recruit interested volunteers, and encourage all to visit West Chester for an evening of learning and camaraderie. Each documentary is ten minutes; plan to arrive on time for the performances that interest you!
