I am somewhat flabbergasted that someone would steal from a historic site which is essentially next door neighbors with the police department in Willistown! But then I am flabbergasted someone would steal a bench off of anyone’s front porch!
Please if you know where this bench is just return it to them. They are saying they just want it back no questions asked.
Here is hoping someone does the right thing.
East Wynnewood Road traffic signal to go live by mid-September; left turns from North Wynnewood Road will return
Just the type of event I like to promote, and considering the development news I do NOT like coming out of Westtown Township, it is really nice to be able to tell you about something positive and involving historic preservation.
Westtown Township is holding the very first ever Westtown Day at Oakbourne Park on Saturday September 17th from 10 am to 2 pm. The location is 1014 South Concord Rd. Westtown, PA.
Learn about Westtown’s rich past, notable residents, and historic events since its inception in 1685. There will also be family-friendly events and games for children. Come and meet your neighbors! All ages are welcome.
Westtown schools, businesses, and individuals will showcase their pride in the township. Events include:
- Civil War re-enactors
- a presentation about the Civil War POW camp right here in Westtown called Camp Elder
- a brief play about an ordinary Westtown resident, a free black farmer named Isaac Winters, who fought bravely in the Civil War,
- petting zoo
- tours of the Oakbourne Mansion and community garden.
- children’s games
- live music
- food and beverages.

I will tell you I would go just to see the mansion and coolio water tower!
