Remembering and Honoring All Who Have Served


Marshallton Conservation Trust proudly presents the 2022 Marshallton Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on Sunday, May 29th at 1:30pm to salute the brave men and women who have served, those who continue to serve, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.


As in years past, the parade lineup will include the Marine Corps Color Guard, colonial reenactors, dignitaries, Boys and Girls Scouts of America, antique cars, and the West Bradford Fire Company trucks. All children are invited to decorate their bicycles, tricycles, strollers, wagons, and even pets to walk in the parade. (Pets must be well behaved and on leads.) Registration for the Decorated Bicycle Contest will start at 12:45 p.m. in the parking lot of the Goddard School. Prizes for winning entries will be awarded at the end of our Memorial Day ceremonies at the Marshallton United Methodist Church (MUMC).


 

The parade will travel from West to East on Strasburg Road and end at MUMC. The street closure will commence promptly at 1:30pm and the detour will remain in place for 20 - 30 minutes.

Pedal, paddle, and pace through the scenic and historic landscape of Chester County on October 2, 2022, as the popular Marshalton Triathlon returns for its 49th year.


Adding to the festive spirit of the Marshalton Triathlon this year is its concurrent timing with the 300th anniversary of the birth of Humphry Marshall, the namesake of the Village of Marshallton. The race course will identify three notable sites along its route associated with the life of Humphry Marshall–his birthplace in Derbydown, the home he built in Marshallton which is a national historic site, and his burial site in the Bradford Friends Meeting cemetery.

Tarad Hill To Be Preserved

We are happy to inform you that West Bradford Township has reached agreement with the owner of Tarad Hill to place the remaining unprotected acreage on the property under conservation easement, thus saving it from threatened development. As you know, there were protracted negotiations associated with this transaction over many months that were of concern to the entire Marshallton community and its neighbors.


We would like to thank all of you who stepped up to express your concern during this process. It is further evidence of the importance of having organizations, like MCT, available to serve as a voice for our community.



 


It Takes a Village

As we face the increased challenges to our community, we know that we cannot do it alone and are grateful for your continued support. We have a very special community and together we will continue to work toward enhancing the quality of life of our village and beyond for generations to come. Together we can preserve the past, protect the present, and plan for the future.
