Event Series Event Series (See All)

Local historians have long celebrated and recognized our founding fathers, but what about the women?  West Chester, long the center of battles for equality and civil rights, has been home to several trailblazing women who left an indelible mark on the history of law, abolition, suffrage, education, politics and science.  Join costumed guides in this outdoor tour of  downtown West Chester.  On this stroll through the borough, we will stop at various landmarks to tell the individual stories of some of the remarkable women that shaped West Chester from colonial times to the present.

Tour covers approximately 1.5 miles and lasts 90 minutes. Tour is entirely outdoors; sidewalks and terrain may be uneven. Event is rain or shine, so please dress for the weather.
