Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., Baptist minister, Nobel Laureate, and civil rights activist who dedicated his life working tirelessly for peace, social justice, and opportunity for all Americans - irrespective of color or creed. As we read through his many inspiring speeches and quotes, we are moved by the common thread of love, service and community throughout.
This inspired us to start this blog series about our community, the community we are building and why we love where we live.
Let's begin with why we love West Chester!
In our search to find all the things we love about West Chester, aside from the university, culture, shopping and dining, we came across this video from Great American Main Street Awards and thought it summed it up perfectly!
West Chester, was one of the three winners of the 2017 Great American Main Street Award from the National Main Street Center Inc., the country's leading nonprofit dedicated to commercial district revitalization. The Borough was recognized for its efforts to preserve the area's historic and cultural heritage while modernizing the downtown into a fine-dining destination.
