Chester Township is a wonderful place to grow up. I loved the schools and the people. I do think that the town should fill the empty store locations, including Larison's turkey Farm. This would help the town dramatically. The downtown of Chester is quaint and always hustling especially around the Apple picking season.

The best of all worlds. Twenty minutes from hustle and bustle. One hour from beaches. Forty minutes from skiing in the winter. Surrounded by farms and nature, hiking and the best shopping.
I love the familiarity of my home area, but it would be nice to live someplace warmer and cheaper. I also enjoy the quality and variey of food near me.
