Town Tours & Village Walks: The Village of Yellow Springs

Thursday, July 18, 2019

In 1810, Yellow Springs was described as a "perfection of landscape." As this unique place unfolded, one could see how the perfection of landscape became the common thread woven over the centuries that entwined the people and provided the background for this village to move forward in distinct historic eras. With nearly 300 years of documented history, this village was a Lenape Indian site, a health spa with healthful mineral springs, a Revolutionary War Hospital, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Country School, and Good News Productions' movie studios. Much has changed; much has stayed the same. Today the village invites visitors to see and learn about this regeneration, reinvention and recycling. Join us as we look at our village and its endurance, perseverance, and tenacity then, now, and into the future. Parking & Registration: Historic Yellow Springs, 1685 Art School Road, Chester Springs. Follow directional signs for parking after entering the village.
