Celebrating 250

In 1763 Chestnuthill Township was established as a township. At its inception the township consisted of Eldred, Polk, Ross as well as the present Chestnuthill. All are involved in celebrating those 250 years.

The historical societies, townships, organizations, businesses, fire companies, library, school and residents of the West End will host a celebration, which will include a parade at the West End Fairgrounds, the week end of Sept. 7.

A history of the West End is being published. To accomplish the goals for this occasion, the public's help is being solicited.

Any group or organization that would like to be in the parade, or support the celebration financially can send information to Chestnuthill 250th Anniversary Celebration, P.O. Box 866, Brodheadsville, PA 18322 or contact Norm Burger at (610) 681-7561.
