Welcome to www.OldChesterPa.com! - If you're new to the site, you might like to know a little more about why this web site exists and about John, your very humble webmaster.  Please keep in mind that the site is always a "work in progress" so if you don't see something about a person or place that is near and dear to you, don't hesitate to post it on our Guest Book at "The Newsstand", or send it on to me for posting.  The old saying, "What Chester Makes, Makes Chester", even applies here to this website.  What Chesterites contribute, makes this an even greater web site about Chester!

We hope that you will enjoy your visit, enjoy learning a little more about the rich history of the city of Chester, get back in touch with some former friends, and share with us in the enthusiasm about the exciting changes happening now in Chester and plans for the future of the city!

Ye Olde (and very Humble) Webmaster,
John
