Conseils des habitants
About 15 minutes away, this historic barn is a maze and passageways of so many books to thrift.
Proclaimed the "Tardis" of book stores, unique store featuring rare, unique and large selection of used books, maps and prints. The store itself is housed in a 5 story structure built in 1822, full of exposed stone and beam, wood stove, cozy nooks and crannies.
A labyrinth of books in an old barn. I can spend hours here going through books displayed in old wooden fruit crates. Featured in the NY Times.
Awesome and unique place to peruse old books! It is a maze of books about a 10 minute drive outside of town.

“Known locally for breakfast, and very good, if you don't have to wait too long. The presentation is simple and average, so don't kill an hour waiting for a table.”

Point of Interest
“The Brandywine Battlefield visitors center, just off Route 1 at Chadds Ford, is set amidst 50 acres of rolling park and woodlands. Inside are historical exhibits of uniforms, weapons and artifacts found on the battleground. On the park grounds, not far from the center are both Washington's headquarters (the Ring House) and Lafayette's quarters (Gideon Gilpin's farm house). The actual battle took place over a 10 square mile area. The British approached Chadds Ford from Kennett Square, splitting their forces and trapping the American's between them. The battle's final conflict took place near the Birmingham Friends Meeting house.”

“Along with its history as the neighborhood nerve center for stage and screen, the Colonial also has a special place in cinematic history thanks to a starring role in the classic film The Blob. Recently expanded with two additional theatres, the Colonial is now fully dedicated to its mission to nurture community by celebrating the power of film and the performing arts to entertain, inform and reveal meaning.”
