A Chester County Tradition!
The 2018 Chester County Day House Tour celebrates the traditional, distinctive architecture of Chester County, PA with some twists. You can begin the tour at a beautifully restored home in West Vincent Township which is believed to have been deeded to a Revolutionary War soldier in payment for his service in that conflict. Down the road from this house is a meticulously kept stone Chester County home with great antiques, rugs and a lovingly-cared for garden. You won’t want to miss the spectacularly restored Queen Ann-style home in West Whiteland Township, PA that was designed and built in 1851 by Andrew Jackson Downing, a prominent advocate of the Gothic Revival in the United States. The fountains, gardens, mahogany-lined rooms and diamond lead-paned windows of this house are memorable. It’s hard to believe when the owner purchased this house oil had seeped into the basement and water was leaking all the way from the attic to the first floor. Around the corner from this house is a pristine stone R. Brognard Okie house set on a hill with a beautiful stone-banked garage. And Loch Aerie Mansion in Frazer, PA will open its newly renovated doors to tour goers this year.

Women's Auxiliary Pledge: The Birth of an Era
Focus: Women's and Children's Health
The Women's Auxiliary's most recent pledge is truly the birth of an era for healthcare in Chester County. To celebrate 125 years of delivering excellent care for women and children, The Women's Auxiliary has pledged $1.25 million over the next two years to NICU expansions and renovations.
Chester County Hospital, part of Penn Medicine, provides care for more than 300 premature infants and full-term babies with health challenges each year, with a 36% increase over the past three years. Recent demand for newborn intensive care requires our neonatology team to care for a monthly average of 10-16 babies at a time, in a space designated for 12. Research shows that newborn outcomes improve within a specific environment, and updated space planning with a mix of private rooms and common shared space will support care that is family centered, helping fragile newborns to thrive. Additional improvements include a transition room, a larger nutrition room, and closer nurse monitoring stations with a more direct view.
The Women's Auxiliary is proud to pledge their support of a brighter future for our tiniest patients!
