CHADDS FORD — The Christian C. Sanderson Museum is increasing its hours and will be open for visitors on Thursdays and Fridays from 12pm to 4pm, in addition to the same hours on Saturday and Sunday, March through November.
“We are pleased to be able to expand our hours so that more people will be able to see Chris’ wonderful collection.” said museum President Sue Minarchi. “Now that we are open Thursday through Sunday, it will give visitors who want to visit during the week an opportunity to enjoy the museum. As always, we are delighted to welcome individuals or groups on other days of the week by appointment.”
Christian Carmack Sanderson was born into a historically minded family in Port Providence, Pennsylvania on January 7, 1882. A poplar blossom given to Chris by his grandfather was the beginning of a unique collection of art, historic relics, odd souvenirs, and keepsakes from everyday life. The historian, collector, teacher, musician, and friend to all died on November 19, 1966, but his collection lives on at the Sanderson Museum.
The Sanderson Museum represents a man’s life and a nation’s history. It contains an eclectic array of art, military memorabilia, presidential artifacts, local history, and collectibles. Open March through November, Thursday through Sunday, 12pm to 4pm or by appointment. Visit the museum at 1755 Creek Road (old Route 100), Chadds Ford, just north of Route 1. Admission to the museum is $5 and free for children under 12 accompanied by an adult. For more information, call the museum at 610-388-6545 or go to the website at www.sandersonmuseum.org.
