February, 5 2020 CHADDS FORD, PA – The Sanderson Museum will open on Sunday, March 1 commencing its 54th season. Visitors can explore the thousands of artifacts pertaining not only to Chadds Ford history, but to American history as well. The juxtaposition of local artifacts and those of countrywide significance puts a small town man’s life into a national context. The legacy Christian Carmack Sanderson left was far more than his namesake museum overflowing with thousands of artifacts! Chris, as he was known in adulthood, was many personas to so many people he interacted with in his eighty-four years. First and foremost, he was a teacher and a communicator. He was the consummate educator, and eventually, principal, who impacted hundreds of students’ lives, as well as their parents’ and the communities they lived in. He continued to communicate with many of his former students for years beyond the classroom. On display at the museum is the exhibit, The Schoolmaster, which celebrates his life as a teacher. Visitors will discover artifacts from his teaching career at the Garwood School, Port Providence, Chadds Ford, Locust Grove, Lenape, Dilworthown, Brinton’s Bridge, Glen Mills Public School, Green Tree and Oak Grove! The Sanderson Museum represents a man’s life and a nation’s history. It contains an eclectic array of art, military memorabilia, presidential artifacts, local history, and collectibles.
