You've Made a Difference
As a result of your support, the suburban sprawl inching ever closer to the borders of the Village of Marshallton has been kept at bay. This year alone, our work contributed to the conservation of historic properties like Tarad Hill, Camp Linden, and Castle Rock Farm–the birthplace of Humphry Marshall, our village namesake. The Marshallton Conservation Trust will continue the fight to preserve our remaining vulnerable areas of open space, as we cultivate a strong connection to the history of our village and promote our shared interests and community identity.
The return of in-person events hosted by the Marshallton Conservation Trust including the Memorial Day Parade, Valentine's Day food drive, Halloween celebration at the West Bradford Fire House and the upcoming Victorian Carolers at the Four Dogs Tavern, brings together neighbors, friends and visitors to revive our shared sense of community and pride in our village. It is this spirit of community that best defines the true character of the village today.
Since 2009, Marshallton Conservation Trust's commitment to steward and preserve Marshallton's history has been a basic pillar of our organization. From celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Humphry Marshall–our village namesake–to recording the history of our village through the Marshallton Oral History Project, you have made it possible to enhance Marshallton's sense of place and maintain a connection to the past for future generations.
