300 YEARS OF IRON & STEEL: Supplying Freedom by Trolley!
SPONSOR: Historic Yellow Springs
Hop on our trolley and celebrate 300 years of iron and steel in Chester County touring sites that supplied products to aid the fight for freedom in the founding of our country. The Yellow Springs Revolutionary War Hospital supplied medicine and care for the Continental Army; the Woolen Mill at Charlestown Village produced cloth to dress soldiers and civilians; the Continental Powder Works in Kimberton produced gunpowder; the Anselma Mill in Chester Springs produced flour to feed the growing population and the army. Visit these sites as well as learn about the churches, cemeteries, barns, mills, schools, covered bridges and iron mine sites along our scenic Chester County byways.
