Kennett Township Historical Commission - On the Move
The history and development of Kennett Township is identified through broad themes, which illuminate and illustrate significant local historic events. Our historic resources are a testimony to these themes and events, and Kennett Township takes pride in the protection of its historically rural landscape. Despite changes from development, the Township is making significant strides to preserve the remaining rural sections and resources of the Township. In furtherance of these values, the Township has initiated many efforts to protect the historic resources and landscapes that define the Township. This includes updating the Township-wide Historic Resources Survey that was last completed in 2010.
Historic resources are defined as sites, structures, buildings, objects, and districts possessing a quality of significance and a measure of integrity, which makes them worthy of protection and preservation.
Beginning this month, members of the Kennett Township Historical Commission will be out in the Township, conducting an updated survey of our historic properties. This effort is important for preserving and protecting our historical and cultural resources, and we hope the community will welcome and support our Historical Commission members in updating the Township records. We hope to observe most of the properties from a curb-side location, but please don’t hesitate to say hello if you see them in your area as they would enjoy meeting you! (They will all have a nametag that identifies them).
