History Connections Program

Learn local through CCHS's School and Youth Programs! Read more in our 2017-2018 School Programs Brochure

Through the lens of local history, the Chester County Historical Society tells the story of America's past. We teach through the power of historic objects - the primary documents, letters, diaries, tools, toys, photos and furnishings of days gone by. 

Whether exploring our extraordinary museum with its hands-on history lab, or welcoming us into your classroom, our programs help teachers fulfill Pennsylvania curriculum standards.  Our  interactive programs are taught by enthusiastic and experienced educators who engage your students and spark their curiosity.

β€œThe program was phenomenal and the kids had a wonderful time.  I had two separate comments that this was the best field trip they had ever been on. Please extend my thanks to your staff, the society, and of course all the volunteers. I hope we can continue to build a relationship and have many more wonderful experiences at the museum.”
