Photo of the Week: George Was Here

Gen. George Washington used the Ring House, the home of the Benjamin Ring Family, as his headquarters the night before the 1777 Battle of Brandywine. Fire destroyed the original structure in 1931, but a replacement was built in 1949 and ’50. The rebuilt structure stands at the Brandywine Battlefield Park on Route 1 in Chadds Ford Township.

Photo of the Week: The Old Mill’s Stream

A stream runs past an old hydroelectric mill on Fairville Road. Built by the General Electric Co. in 1919, the generator at the mill provided electricity for the Dawson Family home in post-WWI Pennsbury Township. By the 1930s, though, the generator was no longer needed.

Photo of the Week: Fangs

Biting cold temperatures create fang-like icicles on the underside of a downed tree along the Brandywine Creek by the Route 1 overpass in Chadds Ford. It’s two months until spring, but only three-and-a-half weeks until baseball spring training.
