Chadds-Ford Township is a semi-rural community, located in Delaware County in southeast Pennsylvania, approximately 30 miles southwest of Philadelphia. Chadds Ford Township was previously known as Birmingham Township. The name was changed to honor its role in the Battle of Brandywine and also to allow the community to be known as a "census-designated place." Chadds Ford Township is a peaceful place that lies along the banks of the Brandywine Creek. It's most well-known for being home to N.C. Wyeth, his son Andrew Wyeth and grandson Jamie Wyeth. A mix of rolling hills and green spaces surround the community and many historic sites, including Brandywine Battlefield, can be found in the area. Brandywine Battlefield is a historical park that was part of the Battle of Brandywine that fought on September 11, 1777 during the American Revolutionary War. The battle was won by the British and enabled them to capture the city of Philadelphia. It became a state park in 1949 and a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Chadds Ford Township is also home to the Brandywine River Museum, which houses an extensive collection of work by Andrew Wyeth, an American realist painter, his brother Jamie Wyeth, a contemporary realist painter and their father, N.C. Wyeth, an illustrator of children's classics.

Chadds Ford Weather & Climate

Northern Delaware, which consists of New Castle County, is generally considered to have a humid subtropical climate. There is some debate as to whether the extreme northern portion of the county is humid subtropical or warm continental. The main difference being whether winter temperatures are cold enough to support a fixed period of snow cover each year. Most areas of northern Delaware experience relatively mild winters because the mountains of Pennsylvania protect it from harsh, cold winds. Summers are warm and humid with thunderstorms, although not as hot as the southeastern part of the state. Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the state; however, the north and southeast receive the most precipitation. Delaware is a tiny state, only 96 miles long and from 9 to 35 miles across. Almost all of the state is part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain and therefore the effects of the ocean moderate the climate. Severe storms, such as hurricanes are rare in northern Delaware and when they do occur, plenty of warning is given for these types of storms.
