Chester County, once known as a “hotbed of abolitionism,” was the threshold of liberty for Black freedom seekers making their way across the border from Delaware, a slave state, and into Pennsylvania, a free state.
Kennett Square, reflecting its central role in this history of emancipation and the Underground Railroad, will host a weekend of Juneteenth events this year.
Enjoy the multi-sensory beauty of flowers and the talent, creativity, and imagination of local floral designers in these installations that have transformed seven different locations throughout town—this weekend only!
