Beginnings [1]

Flanked by farms three miles north of West Chester on Route 29 at Boor Road in West Goshen Township, is a modern development featuring two types of split-level homes and one ranch style. Lots are a half acre. Built by Foley Calder, Inc., who selected the name on account of the attractive lots in Chester County, the development found itself in the newspapers for the first time in 1955, when it was known as Park Chester Estates. Richard G. Kelly Jr., shortened the name to Parkchester in 1958 when he built the majority of houses there.
