“Escape Brandywine” Historic Escape Room Experience @ Chadds Ford Historical Society
Jul 8 @ 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Escape Brandywine is a new, historically immersive escape room experience available on select Saturdays this Summer!

PURCHASE TICKETS
Tickets are $28 per person - Tickets go on sale Friday, May 26th at 10 am
Tickets must be purchased in advance online, as space is limited.

Escape Brandywine is an escape room experience, set inside the John Chads House, c.1725 historic home located along site of the Battle of Brandywine. This escape room program is unlike any other, since it places you directly inside an authentic historical space with a Revolutionary War mission!

Escape Brandywine places participants into roles of spies on the eve of the Battle of Brandywine, and charges them with finding General Howe's battle plans that have been hidden inside the Chads House for safe keeping. Using real Revolutionary War spy techniques, codes and cyphers, players will have 60 minutes to solve puzzles that will allow them to locate the plans and escape the house to deliver the plans to George Washington!

To purchase your tickets, click here.  Private escape room experiences are available for corporate outings, team building, private parties and special events!   Please email info@chaddsfordhistory.org or call 610-388-7376 to check availability.

The Great Pumpkin Carve of Chadds Ford @ Chadds Ford Historical Society
Oct 19 @ 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

2017 Great Pumpkin Carve hosted by Chadds Ford Historical Society

Each year at the Great Pumpkin Carve, over 60 carvers gather to sculpt, saw and chisel giant pumpkins – some weighing up to 400 pounds – before crowds of enthusiastic onlookers.  This unique Chadds Ford tradition began in the early 1970’s when Andrew Wyeth and his son, Jamie, were convinced to carve pumpkins for decorating the inside of the Chadds Ford Inn (today Brandywine Prime). Other Chadds Ford artists joined in the carving and, within a few years, the event spread from the Inn’s front porch all the way across the lawn of the Chadds Ford Gallery. As the Pumpkin Carve grew it moved to larger and larger venues, finally landing in the meadow behind the Chadds Ford Historical Society in 1992.

The Great Pumpkin Carve, hosted by Chadds Ford Historical Society, is a family friendly event that is guaranteed to get everyone in the halloween spirit. There are hayrides offered for the kids, food vendors, live music and much more.  Live pumpkin carving contest takes place on Thursday evening.  The pumpkins will be lit after the carving is completed and then displayed all three nights-Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 7 to 17 and FREE for CFHS members

For more information, please visit www.ChaddsFordHistory.org or www.GreatPumpkinCarve.com.
