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!

Escape Brandywine places participants into roles of spies on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine, and charges them with finding General Howe's battle plans that have been hidden inside the Chads House for safe keeping. Using real Revolutionary War spy techniques, codes and cyphers, players will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles that will allow them to locate the plans and escape the house to deliver the plans to George Washington!

Private escape room experiences are available for corporate outings, team building, private parties and special events. Please email email@example.com or call 610-388-7376 to check availability.
