June 25, 2009

Tuesday night, the Delaware County Council held their June monthly meeting in the original 1724 Chester Courthouse located in downtown Chester PA.

The Council began the session with its regular business.  This was followed by a great presentation by Carol of the Delaware County Historical Society on some of the history of the Courthouse and of Chester’s development over the years.  Finally, the meeting wrapped up with time for the Council members’ comments and a public comment and question period.  After the meeting, the Delaware County Historical Society also held their museum and library open for those attending in the building located next door.

All in all, an excellent meeting and a great way to experience some of the history of Chester.  The County Council hopes to hold two additional off-site meetings in the fall in two additional townships.
