Welcome to an online collection of artifacts from through Chester’s history. Many of these have been collected over the years and rather than just stay hidden in filing cabinets and boxes, I thought it would be good to display them until (hopefully!) one day Chester gets a museum of its own.
Do you have something in your collection to share? Send a clear photo and short description via email and we’ll add it!
1931 High School Commencement Invitation
Here’s a nice piece of school history. It’s an invitation to the Commencement Exercises for the Senior Class of Chester High School. The event was held on May 27, 1931 at the Methodist Church (across the street from the school). This particular invitation was sent by Arthur Gallion.
