This is my newest painting of several of the buildings in Sugartown, PA that is in Chester County. During the summer my daughter Dawn and I visited this area and taking numerous photos of the buildings and assorted objects. We went into the antique shop and saw old samplers that children made about 100 years ago.
This is located on Sugartown Road just after Providence Road intersects it. The local historic society is restoring the community so there are several other buildings and barns.
The town was named after Eli Shugart, an early 19th-century tavern keeper. Sugartown was a typical crossroads village that provided goods and services required by the surrounding farm community.
