Review for Historic Yellow Springs, Inc., Chester Springs, PA, USA
I am an American living in France whose second love happens to be Historic Yellow Springs :
Cross Pickering Creek on the venerable stone bridge and you’re a time traveller, for just ahead is where the road splits, but whichever way you head you are sure to succumb to the delightful charms of Historic Yellow Springs.
Robert Frost would likely point out that you’ve chosen the magical « road not taken » one that witnessed Revolutionary War wounded arriving for treatment at the hospital whose foundation walls still stand where General Washington’s troops once sought solace and healing in a woods « lovely, dark and deep ».
The filtered sunlight reveals not just historic clapboard inns and cozy homes but peaceful natural glades and shaded ponds where you might well spot a herd of deer, some impish raccoons or perhaps a pheasant. Small wonder that Historic Yellow Springs is such a haven for writers and artists.
The artistically inclined have flocked here for over 40 years in seeking to further their education in fine arts and ceramics at the renowned Chester Springs Studio, successor to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Country School and a rare gem that remains a popular regional center of education, arts and culture.
At Chester Springs Studio, the accomplished faculty nurtures and inspires students to be at their creative best as artists and as individuals committed to their craft and this exceptional community.
