West Chester was originally known as Turks Head, after the Inn of the same name located in now what is the center of the borough. It was the first commercial operation and was founded in 1762. It was near the northeast corner of High and Market.
West Chester is unique for the fact that it contains such a large collection of well-preserved eighteenth century architecture for such a small town located in a suburban region.
