The Chadds Ford Historical Society is celebrating the holiday season with the 28th annual Candlelight Christmas on Saturday, December 7.

John Chads House (circa 1725), Taggart’s Tavern (1800), the Marlborough Meetinghouse (1801) and the Christian Sanderson Museum (early 1840’s) along with many others will be decorated and hosting visitors from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

Each year, visitors have been pleased with the rustic décor and festive cheer. Due to the variety of architectural styles and unique features of every structure, the event should be a wonderful experience for the entire family.
