London Britain Township, Chester County Pennsylvania
March 14, 1681 William Penn received a charter from the King of
England for a grant of land to establish a colony in the New World.
This colony was named Pennsylvania, or Penn's Woods. The Township
of London Britain was organized in 1725 from a tract of land belonging
to the London Company of Great Britain. London Britain is bordered
by Maryland on the south and Delaware on the east. The Mason Dixon
Line Marks the border between the Township and Maryland.
There are 9 square miles in the Township with approximately 3000
residents living in 1000 households, 35 miles of Township roads
and 1250 acres in the State owned White Clay Creek Preserve. The
White Clay Creek Watershed was designated as a Federal Wild and
Scenic River on October 24, 2000.
