 Brandywine
Newlin Grist Mill > NewlinGristMill.org
Back in the day, grist mills weren’t exactly known
as party places. As a matter of fact, day in and
day out, it was the same old grind. (Ba-dum-bump!) But that’s not the case at Newlin Grist Mill where Happy Hour happens on select Thursday evenings throughout the spring and summer — each one highlighting a different aspect of the site and featuring a variety of locally made beverages. Although, truth be told, every hour is happy here with events like naturalist programs, bird walks, blacksmith demonstrations and even public archaeology programs where you’re sure to dig up a little fun.

 Brandywine Brandywine Battlefield
> BrandywineBattlefield.org
The people of Delco are not known for being the kind to back away from a fight — not now and not in 1777 when the American colonists took on the British
at the Battle of the Brandywine. Our region has a number of notable Revolutionary sites — including the brand-new Museum of the American Revolution in Phila- delphia (scheduled to open in spring), but THIS is the site of the largest engagement of the American Revolutionary War. Today, visitors can tour Washington’s headquarters, take in a re-enact- ment, or just wander the grounds thinking of how different life would be (a chorus of “God Save the Queen,” anyone?) if not for the heroic acts of those first American citizens.
