Neighborhoods

East Nantmeal is home to four resources that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places:


"Part of the northwestern section of Chester County was first opened to white civilization in the first decade of the eighteenth century when Welsh settlers entered the wooded hill country and named it for their birthplace in Radnorshire, Wales. Nantmeal, as it was originally spelled, means "sweet water" or "land of the sweet stream." In 1739 the original township was divided into East Nantmeal and West Nantmeal. The western township was divided in 1789 and again in 1852 to form Honeybrook and Springton (now Wallace) townships." [1]
