The National Iron & Steel Heritage Museum
"A Chester County Treat"
Visit Primitive Hall, one of Chester County's oldest homes.

Then Explore Historic Yellow Springs. 

Built in 1738, Primitive Hall was the ancestral home of the Pennocks, an influential farming family. This historic gem retains much of its eighteenth-century characteristics today and is rarely open to the public.

Historic Yellow Springs is a living village that spans almost 300 years of our nation’s history and is steeped in such distinguished tradition and folklore that it stirs the imagination of all who visit the property.

Lenape Indian settlements were followed by English and Welsh farmers and those traveling to “take the waters” that spring forth. The Yellow Springs Revolutionary War Hospital was built here supplying medicine and care for the Continental Army; the Civil War Pennsylvania Soldiers’ Orphan School occupied the village; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts established its Country School here. Good News Productions opened studios to produce films including THE BLOB!
