The West Chester Downtown Foundation created the West Chester Preservation Awards to recognize projects, programs, and individuals that have helped to highlight and preserve West Chester’s historic character. By bringing attention to such efforts, the WCDF hopes to encourage and engage business owners and residents of West Chester Borough in good preservation practices to strengthen the Borough’s historic fabric.
