The Village of Sugartown


T

he village of Sugartown is a living example of the spirit of Chester county settlers and is maintained by Historic Sugartown, Inc., a non-profit corporation dedicated to historic preservation.

Located in Willistown Township, Sugartown was a thriving community in the early 19th century.

Today, visitors can fully relive its history in many restored buildings. The William Garret house is 2 1/2 story, four-bay, three-room plan fieldstone dwelling. The General Store dates back to 1810. In 1860, Sharpless Worrall built an Italianate plastered-stone structure for his large family. Hannah Cheever, the innkeeper at nearby Sugartown Inn, built this 2 1/2 story, four-bay dwelling in 1835. The Book Bindery was built by Historic Sugartown to contain and demonstrate an extensive collection of 19th-century bookbinding tools.

Tours and educational programs are available at Historic Sugartown.
