 Last week, the Town Tours of Chester County, Pennsylvania visited West Grove. Our group was told that the village of West Grove derived it’s name from the Friends Meeting House on Harmony Road which was built in 1787 on the western edge of London Grove Township. West Grove was separated from London Grove Township and became an incorporated Borough in 1893.We were invited into the Friends Meeting House by Mary Sproat, a member of the meeting, who explained their  history and how the members took the Orthodox side during the "great separation" of 1827-28, which began in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. Approximately two-thirds of area members split into a group that came to be called "Hicksite," while the remaining third, eventually known as "Orthodox," espoused a more Protestant emphasis on...

   At the turn of the last century, this home was known as The Buttonwoods, after the giant sycamore trees on the property. One of them is on the National Historic Tree Registry. This 5 bedroom historic home sits on 4 acres and not only contains a house, but a gristmill, whose exterior has been restored and interior reinforced. It is in a country setting, but not far from a shopping center with a new supermarket, restaurants, and a coffee shop. On the banks of the Big Elk Creek, which is on the southern edge of this lovely piece of land.     Here you see the Ruston/McDowell Mill, which is said to have ground flour for Washington's army. This magnolia was blooming outside the front door in June, right next to the cherry trees in bloom the month before.

Welcome to 6 Keno Lane - Danielle's newest upcoming foreclosure in West Grove PA. Recently, there have been fewer foreclosures in Delaware County PA as the activity appears to have become more concentrated in Philadelphia and down in Delaware.  To continue our foreclosure series, this is one of the latest of Danille Mateu's foreclosures that is coming up in Chester County PA. Located in Penn Township, Keno Lane is a small cul-de-sac off Corby Rd just west of its intersection with Jennersville Rd.  This location affords the owner easy access to much of the region.  Just north on Route 796, Route 1 provides quick access toward Oxford to the west and West Grove/Kennett and Delaware County to the east.  Just to the west, Corby Rd intersects with Route 896 which leads to Lancaster to the nor...

West Grove, Pennsylvania-A Well-Preserved Town   At the intersection of Evergreen and Prospect Streets in historic West Grove, Pennsylvania, you can get an idea of what it must have been like in 1893, when this Borough was incorporated.  Named after the West Grove Quaker Meeting House, the town was a center of local trade dating back to 1731, when John, Thomas, and Richard Penn granted 5000 acres to William Penn, grandson of the Founder of Pennsylvania, subject to the rental of 'one red rose on the twenty-fourth day of June if demanded.' This payment has been made almost every year since. Usually a direct descendent of Penn had been present to receive the red rose. This is done in a public ceremony, generally on the Saturday following Labor Day, and attracts a large crowd. Below:  The H...

The Penn Township Park is located in Jennersville, next to the Jennersville Regional Hospital, and across the street from the YMCA. There are gazebos and picnic tables for rent in the park by contacting the Township office.  The Jennersville YMCA was a beehive of activity around the kiddie and adult pools on a recent summer Sunday. A more quiet scene (at least on the surface)  was across the road at the Jenners Pond retirement community. Residents have full use of the YMCA, plus their own walking trail, health center, dining rooms, a library, activity rooms, and even a pub! And just down the road, is the 59 bed Jennersville Regional Hospital, with its own emergency center, and 85 licensed physicians. And all you have to do is turn around, and see that you are still in the midst of the ...

The West Grove postal area includes many communities, the most populated is probably Jennersville.  With activities centered on Old Baltimore Pike and the Route 1 expressway, lots of activity is found centered on the intersection with Route 796. Here can be found a large modern shopping center which is a study in contrasts.  Within a few yards of one another, you can see a Starbucks with a drive-in window and hitching posts for the Amish community and their horse carts. A neighbor tells me she has only seen one horse ever tied up there, and we wonder how often the Amish go to get coffee or shop at the Giant Food Store (never?).

The village of West Grove derived its name from the Friends Meeting House on Harmony Road built in 1787 several miles west of the Friends Meeting House in the village of London Grove. The March 28, 1885 Daily Local News described West Grove as "one of the most flourishing villages in this county" and stated that "it contains some three flouring mills and the largest nursery for rose culture (see below) in the United States (Dinger & Conrad, Co.), a large casket factory (Paxson Comfort) and a large number of dwellings". In May 1885, the Chester County Democrat reported that thirty new homes were under construction. Today, the Friends Meeting House (Quaker) overlooks the east end of town from its peaceful setting which includes a bird sanctuary and arboretum. It is located on a site occup...
