Tickets are on sale now: online from this website, at the library and at Chester County Book Company.    Advance sale ticket prices are $30 pp; day of price is $40.  All proceeds benefit the West Chester Public Library’s services and programs for the greater West Chester community.


This year’s walking tour showcases  ten beautiful homes in the  southwestern neighborhood of the West Chester Borough; seven of the homes are nestled around the beautiful historically preserved Everhart Park, the borough’s 2nd oldest park. Those seven homes are all within easy walking distance of one another.  Two other homes are further towards High Street.  The homes this year were built between 1787 and 1959, each with its own special charm and history.
