A hub for commerce in Colonial times, Chester continued its prosperous reputation during the industrial revolution, and it is famous for its textile and paper mills. The town is home to the oldest public building in continuous use--the 1724 courthouse. Kimberly-Clark, formally Scott Paper Company, is among the successful local businesses today.

Through the years, many prominent people, including the Wetherill, Scott, Deshong, and Crozer families, called Chester home. Through vintage photographs, Chester documents the communitys golden years from the post-Civil War era to the 1950s.
