2021 Town Tours & Village Walks: Chester County Journeying Toward Freedom

5pm to 8pm

Join Chester County this summer in “Journeying Toward Freedom” during the 2021 Town Tours and Village Walks program!

Much like last year, the virtual programs will occur “Live at 5” on Thursday evenings throughout June, July, and August – however this year will bring back the program’s original walking tour component (on a limited basis).

Through the 2021 Town Tours and Village Walks program, individuals can learn about the founding principles and the sites in Chester County that were intrinsic to our nation’s history and had a profound impact on the cause for freedom. From the Quaker values of tolerance and necessary civil disobedience to the boundary dispute with Maryland and the drawing of the fateful Mason and Dixon Line, Chester County’s abolitionists and freedom seekers have had a profound impact on the nation’s history.
