Junior Guide Program
Explore history at the Chadds Ford Historical Society by learning 18th century crafts and skills. This group of history buffs (aged 11 years through 12th grade) helps put the "story" back in history during our living history presentations. Each young person is encouraged to learn how people in 18th century Chadds Ford lived. This is accomplished with participation in hands-on activities such as sewing 18th century clothing, producing trim using lucets and tape looms, spinning, making candles, and learning colonial dances. Junior guides may visit with 18th century re-enactors, both civilian and military, observe bread being prepared and baked in the beehive oven, and assist with the preparation of a meal cooked on the open hearth. Other activities include learning the art of historic interpretation by giving tours of the John Chads House and Barns-Brinton House.
