Oermead Farm~s wonderful heritage began as a simple stone farmhouse built by John Newbrough in 1732. The dining room and den were added in 1792, and the kitchen was added in 1915. One family ~ the Howells and Brintons ~ lived in the home from 1868 to 1961. It was during this time that Deborah and Frances Brinton worked with other community leaders to found Chester County Day. The iconic drawing of Oermead Farm graces the yearly Chester County Day program and is featured on the cover of Bernice Ball~s book, Forty Years of Days. The name Oermead derives from the Brintons, who were known to enjoy watching the sunset o~er the meadow or ~O~ermead.~ A new roof was installed in 2018 and the outside of the house was painted in 2017. Situated off Strasburg Road, on a quiet cul de sac with only four other homes, Oermead Farm is centrally located within ~ mile to West Chester. The hiking trails of Stroud Preserve and Harmony Hill Nature area are also close by.
