School History: South Chester Borough was incorporated in 1870, and only existed as a borough for twenty-eight years. 

Recollections: "I have located what appears to be my ggfather's (Hiram L. Lutz) Chester residence at 2912 W 2nd St (near Thurlow) living with an aunt Ella J. Wechter. She was a widow at least by 1920 (per Census). Her husband, Harvey Wechter was listed in the Chester City, PA Directory of 1888-89 as "foreman oil works"."
