The Gables at Chadds Ford
Watercolor Painting Coming Soon Early Fall of 2019
In the summer of 2019, I began searching for historic inns and restaurants to include in my recent series. The Gables at Chaddsford was a perfect subject. This quaint establishment, with its charming wraparound porch, derives its name from a large number of Victorian-era gables featured between the roof slopes. There are twenty-three of them to be exact.
Originally part of a 138-acre land grant from William Penn, the Gables at Chaddsford was one of the first homes in the Township. In fact, two of the four original chimneys are still visible. The pre-revolutionary property operated as a working farm for over a hundred years. Furthermore, it is believed to have been one of the stops on the Underground Railroad. Finally, in March of 2002, the house was placed on the National Historic Register.
In painting this wonderful piece of local history, I hope to capture the grandeur of a bygone era. This restaurant, like so many historic inns, holds a special place in the hearts of those who know it. It is comforting to know that something so beautiful has survived throughout the ages and weathered the changes of time.
