The Pennsylvania Humanities Council's (PHC) Chester Made Cultural Exploration Zone engages the community in the collection, interpretation, and revitalization of Chester's underground history in the downtown cultural district and corridor, through programs with interdisciplinary practitioners in history, creative placemaking, and urbanism. Utilizing historical research and community input gathered during a series of interpretive programs and community-curated events, PHC is putting forth new city narratives and expanding its digital Cultural Asset Map, and the project will culminate in a community festival inspired by Chester's history.
