Historic Yellow Springs

Historic Yellow Springs is a living village that spans almost 300 years of our nation’s history and is steeped in such distinguished tradition and folklore that it stirs the imagination of all who visit the property.

Lenape Indian settlements were followed by English and Welsh farmers and those traveling to “take the waters” that spring forth. The Yellow Springs Revolutionary War Hospital was built here supplying medicine and care for the Continental Army; the Civil War Pennsylvania Soldiers’ Orphan School occupied the village; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts established its Country School here. Good News Productions opened studios to produce films including THE BLOB!

Today Historic Yellow Springs, a 140 acre historic site within Chester Springs in West Pikeland Township, is pleased to share, preserve and celebrate this unique place focusing on history, the arts, education and the environment.  It enriches the lives of all who come here.
