Delaware County Council Meeting - June 2009 - 1724 Chester PA Courthouse

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

The 1724 Courthouse is the oldest continuously used public building in the United States. Every year, several public functions are held in the original chambers to continue this long standing tradition of public use.

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 their building located next door.

The video provides some abbreviated excerpts of the meeting:

 

All in all, it was 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.

As always, if you are thinking of a move or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.
