Faces Of Chester County

Gaze into the recent and distant past of Chester County through the people captured in painted portraits. Before Facebook, paintings revealed people, their settings and artistic styles of their era. An extensive collection of portraits in the CCHS museum collection spans two centuries of men, women and children who lived here, opening windows into the lives of ordinary and extraordinary people. Some are important because they are rare images of people before the invention of cameras.

On The Edge of Battle: Chester County and The Civil War

150 years ago our country was engulfed in turmoil. Battles for hearts and minds raged over union and secession, freedom and slavery. Chester County was not united in support for the Union or President Lincoln, and public meetings and rival newspapers fanned the flames of conflict. Experience the hopes, struggles, victories and losses of local men and women who lived during our nation's bloodiest war and see how their words and actions echo in our lives today.
