OVERVIEW

ABOUT
KENNETT
SQUARE

Geographically positioned in the rolling hills of Southern Chester County and known to many as the Mushroom Capital of the World, Kennett Square sits in the heart of lush Brandywine Valley. Surrounded by diverse neighborhoods, our family-friendly downtown Kennett has much to offer. Becoming known for its live music scene, great local breweries, local artists, and modern wellness, all compliment Kennett’s incredible restaurants, coffee cafes, shops, boutiques. Just outside of town are many family-owned farms providing the freshest ingredients to our local restaurants and co-op programs. If one of the world’s great gardens, Longwood Gardens, isn’t enough, try our great hiking, mountain biking trails, river floats, or other Brandywine Valley attractions just minutes away.  

Kennett Square served an important role in the nation’s history. Originally occupied by Lenape tribe members, British soldiers camped here during the Revolutionary War, the town served as a military encampment during the War of 1812 and many prominent citizens aided with the Underground Railroad all earning Kennett Square a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Drivable to the Pocono's, Jersey Shore, and Delaware beaches, and only 45 minutes from Philly and the Chesapeake Bay. This is a great place to visit and call home.
