Chester Springs Historic District

Belonging to Chester Springs is the Chester Springs Historic District, located north of Chester Springs on Art School Road. The district, also referred to as Orphan's School, Yellow Springs Spa, Good News Buildings, and The Old Art School, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

Some of the most notable buildings within the district include a wooden summer house, a bathhouse, the old hotel and inn, and two large residences. Many of the buildings within the district were built in the early-mid 19th century and still hold the older architectural style.

The property of the wooden house was once the site of the town's hospital built in 177, which the Continental Congress commissioned. The building was significant in the community and faced several reconstructions.

In 1902, the original structure consisting of three stories burned down and was built back up. The building stood and operated for a number of years but burned down once again in the 1960s.

Today, the historic district remains a favorite destination for visitors and residents of Chester Springs, PA.
