19470 St Peters

Saint Peters is a community located in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The village is an historic 19th century industrial 'company village' at the Falls of French Creek in Warwick Township.
Located in a narrow ravine along French Creek, Saint Peters has its origins in the French Creek iron mines established in 1845. In 1880, granite quarrying began and the "Excursion House" hotel opened, distinguishing the community as both an industrial village and recreational weekend retreat. The bulk of the residence and businesses were built following the hotel's opening.
Spurs of the Wilmington and Northern and Delaware River and Lancaster railroad lines once ran through the village servicing the local mining, forging and quarrying operations.
