1. Brief History of John Chads House
The house was built in 1725, possibly by John Wyeth, Jr. In 1729, John Chads married Elizabeth Richardson. The couple occupied the home together until John Chads died in 1760. Elizabeth remained in the house for over 60 years, and according to reports, observed Hessian and Continental troop movements from the attic windows.
The house is on the National Register of Historic Places, as part of the Chadds Ford Village Historic District and an element of the Brandywine Battlefield
