Chester County was also one of the three original Pennsylvania counties created by William Penn in 1682. With a rich colonial history and cultural heavyweights such as; Longwood Gardens, the charming villages of the Brandywine Valley and the Brandywine River Museum of Art, it is no wonder that seniors are flocking to Chester County.
