Welcome to Chadds Ford Historical Society!
The Chadds Ford Historical Society works to share the history of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. We have three 18th century buildings that are open to the public seasonally - the John Chads House, the Chads Springhouse, and the Barns Brinton House. Throughout the year, we also offer a variety of fun and educational programs, special events, summer camps, and group tours. We invite you to visit us at our Barn Visitors Center to begin your historic experience in Chadds Ford!
Please view our Volunteer Opportunities at upcoming events and educational programs.
