A Prominent Place in U.S. History
Chester (population 34,000) is situated along the Delaware River in southeastern Pennsylvania, between Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del. Originally settled by Swedes, William Penn acquired the town in 1682 and renamed it Chester, after Chester, England.
Chester is home to five nationally registered historic places:
William Penn Landing Site – This stone monument marks the spot of William Penn’s first landing in Pennsylvania territory in 1682.
1724 Chester Courthouse – At 2½ stories tall with 2-foot-thick walls, it’s the oldest public building still standing in the U.S.
Chester Waterside Station of the Philadelphia Electric Company – Currently an office building, the complex was once a coal-fired power station, with the original section built in 1916.
Delaware County National Bank – This served as the headquarters of Delaware County National Bank from its completion in 1884 to 1930.
Old Main and Chemistry Building – These connected buildings on the campus of Widener University were built in 1867 and 1883, respectively.
