Ring In The New Year with a trip to "Trailside Farm" in bucolic Birchrunville. This idyllic farmstead first conveyed in 1790 from Thos. Willig, a Phila. gentleman to John Thomas, Yeoman of Vincent Township, was once part of a 184 acre tract. Built in 1793, Jacob Heffelfinger enlarged the home in the mid 1800s. Throughout its colorful history it has been a dairy, horse & tobacco farm as well as the swimming hole for generations of Chester Springs residents.
