Description:
The Library contains a wealth of information for the researcher – whether your interests are genealogy or local history, property research or antiques. Beginning with the first donation to CCHS back in 1893, our manuscript collections have now grown to number over 500,000 items and include both personal and family papers, as well as the records of businesses, organizations, churches and schools throughout Chester County. Over 25,000 published volumes fill our Library. We have an extensive collection of genealogies, plus many books and periodicals covering state and local history (including works on neighboring states and counties). The Library's large collection of published works on decorative arts is a resource for both our museum and the public. Chester County newspapers are available on microfilm, CD and in our renowned newspaper clippings file. A collection of local historic maps will aid both the property and family researcher. All of these and many additional resources are available for use by researchers.
