Chester Land Trust
Oh, Chester. Everyone loves Chester. Not quite Essex, but not Deep River either. Chester is lovely. Randomly, my father grew up in Chester, Pennsylvania which is just south of Philadelphia. His family was part of the white flight in the 1950’s and while Pennsylvania’s Chester is now home to an MLS stadium (go Union!), it’s a pretty rough and ugly place.
Chester, Connecticut is the opposite of that. There are no refineries in our town and no burned out blocks of row houses. Both towns are along major rivers – the Connecticut and the Delaware – but only Connecticut’s has greenspace and a state forest and trails. And a land trust.
