Located in the Chester County Government Services Center, the Chester County Archives is administered by Chester County Historical Society in cooperation with the County of Chester. Established in 1982, the Archives is committed to preserving and making available the historic government records of Chester County. Their holdings include estate files, vital records (births, deaths and marriages), deeds, taxes and many other historically significant county records. The Archives website is also a good place to start your old house research.
