East Linden Street:
a History

In fall 2008 East Linden Street: a History was published. KURC has been researching the history of Kennett’s East Linden Street, with its tradition of a diverse population and its ties to early Kennett industry and entrepreneurship, as well as to the Underground Railroad. Chester County Community Foundation, Wachovia Regional Foundation, and Pennsylvania’s Department of Community & Economic Development are generous sponsors of this project.
