As the adage goes, it takes a village. It may be a phrase you’ve heard a thousand times, but in the Village of Marshallton, it is more than just a saying. It is our way of life.
We have seen it first hand as our community came together in February to collect 903 pounds of food and staples, plus more than $1,000 in cash and gift cards, to donate to the West Chester Food Cupboard. We have felt it in the deeply-rooted community pride on full display at the Memorial Day Parade and the numerous celebrations to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the birth of Humphry Marshall–our village namesake. We have heard it in the resounding rallying cry to preserve the open space surrounding Marshallton that resulted in the preservation of iconic properties like Tarad Hill.
It is our privilege to serve this special community as we work to promote the history of the village, maintain its sense of place, and protect the open space and natural resources of its environs. Please accept our sincerest gratitude for your continued support that enables us to propel our mission into action. It truly does take a village.

Community Spotlight: John Barr

When John Barr is not pedaling, paddling, and pacing through torrential rain to complete the Marshalton Triathlon, he is channeling his energy into his full-time post as a Senior Portfolio Manager at Morgan Stanley while also volunteering his time as a member of the Marshallton Conservation Trust Board of Directors where he has served since 2010. In honor of his commitment to serving his community, The Morgan Stanley Foundation recently awarded a grant to the Marshallton Conservation Trust for $1,500 on John's behalf. We are so grateful to John, The Morgan Stanley Foundation, and all of our volunteers for supporting our efforts to conserve open space, preserve history, and maintain the quality of life that makes Marshallton an extraordinary place to live. Thank you!
