Frostbite…polar bears…perpetual darkness…ship-crushing ice…death-defying journeys…These may sound like the makings of a Hollywood feature thriller. But this is the Chilling Reality of Chester County’s Arctic explorers. Explore the stories of four Chester Countians in their quest for northern achievements over an 80-year time span. You may discover that hidden within their stories of endurance and bravado are many lessons we can learn about our own 21st century views of the Arctic.

Join us for this free presentation by Ellen Endslow, Curator at the Chester County Historical Society.  CCHS offers a selection of programs highlighting its museum and archival collections. The programs draw upon the expertise of its professional staff and their research on various Chester County topics.
