Kennett Square

Quaint but not quite country, Kennett Square’s small town vibe wins visitors over big time.

A charming borough with a welcoming feel, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is nestled in the rolling hills of Chester County’s countryside. The town has been in existence since before the Declaration of Independence was signed, and its downtown now is part of the National Register of Historic Places with 507 protected buildings built between 1875 and 1924 and in a variety of popular architectural styles including Colonial Revival, Victorian, and Federal. A town with a true sense of community and a steady calendar of events, Kennett Square itself is also enjoyed after visits to nearby Longwood Gardens.
