Easttown Township


The first place of worship, a log cabin at Waterloo and Newtown roads burned down and St. David's, the oldest surviving Episcopal Church, was constructed in 1715. Revolutionary War leader General "Mad" Anthony Wayne was born in Easttown. Legend goes that, he - or at least part of him - is buried at St. David's Church. His family's property, Waynesborough, is a foremost historical attraction in the area. Waterloo Mills Preserve, managed by the Brandywine Conservancy is 170 acres that includes an 18th century village.

There were only a few major estates in Easttown, including the Wilbur family, chocolate competitors of Hershey. Their mansion, Hilltop, sits next to the Easttown Township Building and is used for displays and shows. Hilltop Park is located next to the township building and Frank Johnson Memorial Park is located in Berwyn.
