Chester County (named for Chester, England) was one of the three original Pennsylvania counties created by William Penn on August 24, 1682, along with Philadelphia and Bucks counties. Eastern Chester County is home to many communities that comprise part of the Main Line western suburbs outside of Philadelphia, while part of its southernmost portion is considered suburban Wilmington, along with southwest Delaware County. Chester County replaced the Pennsylvania portion of New Netherland/New York’s “Upland”, which was officially eliminated when Pennsylvania was chartered on March 4, 1681 but did not cease to exist until June of that year. Much of the history of Chester County arises from its location between Philadelphia and the Susquehanna River. The first road to “the West” (Lancaster County) passed through the central part of Chester County, it later became U.S. Route 30, though is still named Lancaster Avenue in most of the Chester County towns it runs through. The first railroad, the Pennsylvania Railroad, followed much the same route, and the Reading Railroad progressed up the Schuylkill River to Reading. Industry tended to concentrate along the rail lines as easy transportation allowed workers to commute to urban jobs, and the rise of the suburbs followed.
During the American Revolutionary War, the Battle of Brandywine was fought at what is now the southeastern fringe of the county.
