True tales of murder, mischief and misadventure, pulled from our archives.
From the horrors of the Chester County Prison, to the cold-blooded killers tried at the courthouse, to explosions and other disasters that have wrought havoc in the borough, West Chester’s streets and alleys have witnessed two hundred years of spine-chilling history. The historians and educators at the Chester County History Center will share these stories–and more–with visitors on this 90 minute walking tour. These are not ghost stories; these are true tales of terror pulled from our own archives.
Each tour will be held entirely outdoors. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes; tours run rain or shine.
