Chilling West Chester: A Dark History Walking Tour

Loading Events

True tales of murder, mischief and misadventure, pulled from our archives.

From the horrors of the Chester County Prison, to the cold-blooded killers tried at the courthouse, to the insidious devastation of contagious disease, West Chester’s streets and alleys witnessed two hundred years of spine-chilling history. The historians and educators at the Chester County History Center will share these stories–and more–with visitors on this 90 minute walking tour. These are not ghost stories; these are true tales of terror pulled from our own archives.

Each tour will be held entirely outdoors. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes; tours run rain or shine.

Please Note: once purchased, tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE. Your admission fee supports the educational mission of the Chester County History Center. Thank you!
