Chester County, Pennsylvania, is one of the original three counties created by William Penn in 1682. Much of Chester's history was formed around its location between Philadelphia and the Susquehanna River. The Lincoln Highway, which is now known as Route 30, passed through Chester and was the "first road to The West." The Battle of Brandywine was fought at the present day northeastern fringe of the county, and the Valley Forge encampment was constructed at the northeastern edge. The former Valley Forge Army Hospital, built during World War II, was one of the largest military hospitals in the United States. According to 2008 Census data, Chester County has a population of approximately 433,501.
Chester is full of attractions and scenic landscapes. Longwood Gardens, a premier display of nature and horticulture, and Winterthur Museum and Country Estate are several of the world renowned attractions in the Brandywine Valley made famous by the legacy of the du'Pont family. Also, after extensive renovations, Nemours Mansion and Gardens is a du'Pont family creation that is not to be missed. Chester County is also known as the Covered Bridge County for its historic covered bridges that are surrounded by beauty, variety, and heritage.
According to 2008 Census data, the average price of homes in Chester County, PA is $238,340.
