About Kennett Square
Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is a borough in Chester County. It is known as the “Mushroom Capital of the World” because mushroom farming in the region produces over a million pounds of mushrooms a year, totaling half of the United States mushroom crop. To celebrate this heritage, Kennett Square has an annual Mushroom Festival, where the town shuts down to have a parade, tour mushroom farms, and buy and sell food and other goods.
General Sir William Howe marched through Kennett to the Battle of Brandywine during the American Revolution. It was also known as an important part of the Underground Railroad, which helped slaves escape to the North for freedom. Many of its prominent citizens helped slaves escape on the Underground Railroad.
