Hunting for history at Radley Run

It’s an evening of food and history at Radley Run Country Club this Thursday with a free walking tour of Master Fox Hunter Charles E. Mathers’ turn-of-the-century Brandywine Meadow Farm located at the current country club property.

Learn how Master of Hounds Charles E. Mathers transformed the old Painter Dairy Farm into a famous hunting box where English hounds were the rage of the era. Visit the 1770 Mansion House where weekend hunting parties were hosted with the rich and famous. Hear stories of the Huntsman and Kennelman's Houses and tour the stone Barn (now club house) that was remodeled for his hunting horses where you can view an extensive Mather family photo gallery.

There will also be a live fox hunt demonstrations with horses and hounds every 15 minutes starting 6:30 p.m.

The event also offers a BBQ buffet — at $20 per person — in the clubhouse from 5-8 p.m. before or after your free tour. For dinner, RSVP with Kim Jones at 610-793-1660 or
