Located on the outskirts of Malvern, Historic Sugartown preserves the 19th-century crossroads village of Sugartown. Originally called "Shugart's Town" after tavern keeper Eli Shugart, Sugartown was a vital stop for weary travelers hauling wagonloads of goods to the markets of Philadelphia and other parts of Chester County.
Today, Historic Sugartown preserves the 19th-century crossroads and offers tours and programs to the community. It also offers bookbinding classes in its world-class Book Bindery, and showcases a collection of 19th-century Chester County carriages and sleighs in its Carriage Museum in partnership with Chester County Historical Society.
Visitors will get to enjoy Sugartown in a whole new light as they are guided through the village by lantern. Visitors will hear lesser-known and chilling tales from the village's history and explore a few spaces not seen on regular tours. The first tour will start at 6PM with the last tour beginning at 8:30PM. Pre-registration is required and space is limited
