An bird's eye view of this typical Chester County suburb in the fall. Sunlight pours on the colorful leaves and we see the main structure of Historic Sugartown at the intersection of Sugartown, Spring, and Boot roads.
The following information is from Historic Sugartown's site, historicsugartown.org:
Along Sugartown Road in Malvern stands the remarkably intact and lovingly restored, 19th-century village of Sugartown. In the early 1800s, with the American Revolution behind them, Sugartown’s early residents established a school, general store, businesses and meeting places, creating a vibrant crossroads that provided goods and services to its surrounding farming community. The village was soon known as Shugart’s Town, after tavern keeper Eli Shugart, and served as a vital stop for weary travelers hauling wagonloads of goods to the markets of Philadelphia and other parts of the county. Sugartown remained a social, educational, commercial and municipal center throughout the 1800s.
Today, Sugartown offers a window into American life in an early 19th-century rural crossroads village. Through the preservation efforts of Historic Sugartown, Inc., visitors experience how people came together to conduct business, exchange news, and shared their lives as a community.
