Town Tours & Historical Walks

Into West Vincent: A Journey to Freedom
On July 16th from 5:30 - 7:00 PM, the Chester County Town Tours and Historical Walks is coming to West Vincent Township.  Parking will be in a field at 1665 Kimberton Road; this is near the intersection with Flint Road.  From this site, the tour will visit the homes of  the Lewis/Fussell extended families of abolitionists who were active well before the Civil War.  After hearing some of the stories of the people living here, you can go left from the parking area on Kimberton Road a little over a mile to the Norris and Ann Maris/Royal Spring Mill site (You are also welcome to begin the tour at this site.)  At the intersection of Kimberton and Pughtown Roads.  To park, turn right onto Valley Road just before Pughtown Road; parking will be on the left side.  Speakers from the Pikeland Historical Society will tell you of people and events at the Norris and Ann Maris/Royal Spring Mill site.  Refreshments will be at both sites.  Click here to read the historical pamphlet that will be handed out on site.

Chester County is upgrading its emergency service alert system

Your safety, and the safety of everyone who lives, works or visits Chester County, is our top concern. Because of this, we are upgrading the emergency notification system that you already subscribe to. The new system – much more technically advanced and flexible – is called ReadyChesCo. Because of updated security measures in the new emergency notification system, ReadyChesCo requires you to create a new account. I ask that you please take a few moments to sign up at to ensure all your contact details are up to date and accurate. ReadyChesCo notifies you during a major crisis or emergency, and will also deliver important alerts such as weather, health or community notifications. Because it is an "opt-in" service, you will only receive the alerts that you request, via email, phone or text messaging. The success of this service relies on YOU. Providing us with your latest contact information is the only way to ensure that we can contact you in an emergency. Please sign up at - it only takes a few minutes to create your account! How does the ReadyChesCo emergency notification system work? The process begins when Chester County issues a message about a current or imminent safety hazard or emergency. ReadyChesCo sends the message to your first choice of contact – email, phone or text message, and we will ask you to confirm receipt. If you unable to confirm receipt of the message on your first choice of contact, the system will move on to your second choice, and so on. The flexibility of ReadyChesCo allows for more specific community and regional notifications to be sent to you, but only what you choose. As you complete the registration process on ReadyChesCo, you will see additional options for types of information you would like to receive from your local municipality, as well as Chester County government programs and services. Thank you for your participation in this important program – and please spread the word about the new ReadyChesCo notification system. Your safety is our top concern, and ReadyChesCo will deliver emergency messages to you in seconds, when seconds count! For questions, please contact: or call 610-344-4779. Chester County Respects Your Privacy. Chester County will never share or distribute your personal information, unless required to do so by law. Additionally, Chester County will never use your information for any purpose other than to send notifications or information that you have registered for on ReadyChesCo.

Trail Blaze Is Chosen for West Vincent

The West Vincent Land Trust held a Trail Logo Design Contest this spring.  The prize offered was a $100 gift card to the Walking Store.  The following is a list of people who entered the contest:  Marty Blumenthal, Tom Kalusky, Ed Humpal, Melanie McCartney, Isabelle Travaglini, Meryl Joblin, Mary Kane, Pete Rodgers, and Davey Waters.  The judges from the West Vincent Land Trust, the Park and Recreation Commission and the Martin Foundation chose a winner.  They combined two different designs and came up with the winning design.  The winners are Marty Blumenthal, 1567 St. Matthews Road and Ed Humpal, 1765 Sawmill Road.  This design will appear on all of the West Vincent trails in the Township.  The Board congratulated the winners and two gift cards were awarded.
