Step up to the wooden porch of Chris Sanderson’s country home and tour eight rooms filled with over 200 years of American history. The Sanderson Museum has a rich collection of objects relating to life in Chadds Ford as well as an extensive collection of memorabilia representing the American experience. Visitors to the museum will uncover artifacts from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, both World Wars and learn about the Battle of Brandywine along with other local lore. Chris and the Wyeth Family shared a love of the Chadds Ford area. See original sketches and paintings from N.C. Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, Peter Hurd and other Wyeth family members.
