Photo of the Week: Archie’s Corner

Mother Archie’s Church at Ring and Bullock roads in Chadds Ford Township. The structure was originally built as a school in the 1800s but became a church for Chadds Ford’s black population in the early part of the 20thcentury. The site was officially designated as “Chadds Ford Historical Site” during a ceremony in September 2003. Mother Archie refers to Lydia Archie, a church leader who died in 1932.
