The Hadley Fund, an endowment created in memory of Theodore and Elizabeth Hadley, was established to provide money for programs that improve the “civic betterment, social welfare, and education" of local residents. The first program in 1962 featured Hal Holbrook presenting “A Night with Mark Twain.”

Since then many musicians, lecturers and performers have graced Hadley’s stages, many of whom became famous after they appeared Kennett Square. Notable past performers have included Martin Luther King Jr., Linus Pauling, Julius Erving, Marian Anderson, Alex Haley, Norman Cousins, Ogden Nash and Gloria Steinem. More recently, Hadley seasons have included lectures by Stephen Kress on puffins, Jerrold Post on terrorism, Linda Ales on photography, and award-winning journalists Donald L. Bartlett and James B.
