East Goshen (West Chester, PA)
About East Goshen (West Chester, PA)
East Goshen is just west of Willistown Township. Rich in history, with a wide variety of housing, it has lovely parks and walking paths and in my humble opinion, a great place to get a cheese steak. This is important to this South Philadelphia transplant. I've been living in East Goshen since my now 21 year old son turned 3. My office is also in East Goshen, at 1595 Paoli Pike, across from the Wawa and Swiss Farms. East Goshen maintains a fabulous website if you'd like to learn the origin of East Goshen. www.eastgoshen.org.

This weekend was the epic blizzard of 2016 on the east coast.  It snowed from Friday night through Saturday night and dumped about 28 inches of very heavy snow in our area.This photo was taken during another snowstorm when JJ was a bit younger but he had a very similar reaction to this year's snow.  He likes the fluffy, light snow that he can plow through.  Not this year.  The snow was so heavy that at one point, he was following me and he actually got stuck!  I had to turn around and lift him out of the snow and carry him!  Poor little fella!Today's word is nothing.  Literally, besides shoveling, I did nothing.  The office was closed, the roads, for all intents and purposes, were closed, the gym was closed and I blissfully did nothing but cook, read, and watch TV all day!When Sunday ca...

By anyone's standards, summer this year on the east coast was wet and cool.  In July, our two weeks at the beach were wet and cold with water temperatures that ranged from 59 to about 62 degrees.  There were some glorious days this year but as far as sunny AND warm, this wasn't that kind of summer.  Until now.  Yes, now it's in the 80's and a beautiful summer day; the only problem is it's autumn! While friends are unhappy because autumn is their season, I am loving the warm days and the extended time I can keep my feet in flip flops and my body in summer clothes.  My only regret is that my pool is closed and I can't jump in and enjoy the warm weather even more, although with it being autumn, I'd be hard-pressed to keep up with the leaves falling into the water!   Today, I'm thankful tha...

West Goshen experienced a tragic fire this week on Gail Road which killed an elderly couple in the early morning of 8/10/12.  Several of our area fire companies and medics responded to the blaze. 3 young men from Station 56 of the Goshen Fire Company went the extra mile today by visiting neighbors on Gail Road and talking to them about smoke alarms.  Offering to test the smoke alarms, the 3 men realized that some of the alarms either didn't have batteries or the batteries were dead.  The firefighters then used their own money and replaced batteries for those that needed it. The firefighters, Ryan Herman, Steve Hiro and Dusty Kilgore, all from Station 56 are just 3 of the many volunteers that put themselves in harm's way to keep our neighborhoods safe from fire.  The mission station of t...

Although I am sad to see the days getting shorter, the sky was certainly beautiful this evening in East Goshen!

As of August 1, there are 173 homes for sale in East Goshen Township.  Of these 173 homes, 71 are single homes, 2 are twins or semi detached (lest you feel these are your run of the mill twins, I'd like to add that they are priced at $800,000 and $839,000).  82 of the 173 are rows or townhouses and 18 are flats.  That is a lot of variety for a small township that measures 10 square miles!  Prices of the active homes range from $110,000 to $2,599,000.     As a resident of East Goshen Township, I can highly recommend the area.  I've lived here for a happy 20 years so far.  According to googlemaps, it's 41 minutes to Philadelphia International Airport and about 45 to 55 minutes to center city Philadelphia depending on the route you take.  I can get to South Jersey in 45 minutes and to Ocea...

I've updated this post from last year because I simply love this photo of my son Mike.  He's 23 now  but would you look at this little face?   East Goshen is not considered rural.  It's not considered country.  But the first week in August always bring a little of rural Chester County to East Goshen with the Goshen Country Fair! Rides for the kids, shows and music, livestock, food, games and just about everything you've come to expect from a good old fashioned Country Fair.  And the best part is that it is a 100% volunteer organization and benefits The Goshen Fire Company.  We've always brought the kids to this fair.  Now, at 23 and 16, they are too old or too cool to visit with their parents.  Pictured here is Mike, my 23 year old at age 1 on his first pony ride!  My husband Jack and I...
