1. Trimbleville Historic District Marker
Inscription. Trimbleville, circa 1740, was named after Irish immigrant James Trimble. Located along the 1728 Great Valley Road, the hamlet grew up around one of Chester County’s earliest grist mills, powered by the Broad Run. Due East, on the Brandywine Creek, is Trimbles Ford, a colonial crossroads. On September 11, 1777 Gen. Howe and over 8,000 Crown Forces crossed the ford in their flanking march to engage Gen. Washington at Birmingham in the Battle of Brandywine. Trimblesville was recognized as a National Register Historic District in 1985.
