The Borough of Chester, which was founded in 1930 when the borough split from Chester Township, is an attractive 1.6 square mile village which succeeds in integrating the heritage of the past with the contemporary conveniences of suburban living. Chesterís Main Street, with its antique shops and old homes, is a visual replica of the town, as it existed 100 or more years ago. Today, residential community families find its historic rural atmosphere and close proximity to suburban businesses and industries highly desirable.

Chesterís early development was closely associated with mining interests so typical of the region. The boroughís growth as an industrial center peaked in the decades following the Civil War. Since that time its character has changed from sheep ranching and woolen mills to suburban residential, manufacturing and agriculture.

Chester Borough and Chester Township share churches, fire department, stores, clubs, recreation programs and educational facilities, thereby offering residents many advantages of suburban living.

In recent years Chester has experienced well-planned residential and commercial growth. The Chester area has undergone a transformation from a quiet rural village into a town renowned for shopping, schools, restaurants and cultural opportunities.†
The impetus for this growth has been the result of the location of several large corporate facilities within the region.†

While the Chesters boast many modern homes on sprawling lots, you also find many old buildings from the 1700-1800ís, notable for an historic old country look.

The borough of Chester encompassing approx. 1.5 sq. miles, is surrounded by almost 30 sq. miles of Chester Twp. More than 30% of the Township is preserved as open space.
