The Brandywine River is an integral part of the history of Chester County. When pioneer Thomas Moore encountered the river in 1716, he established a water-corn mill along its banks. It was the first of many mills that would be built on the edge of what was then, the unsettled western frontier of Pennsylvania. The area grew into a tiny village that prospered and became known as Milltown. In 1761 Thomas Downing conceived and developed a complex of mills. Soon the village was referred to as Downing's town and, in time, was changed to Downingtown.
Painted exactly as it appears today, watercolorist Richard Bollinger has captured a rich part of the borough. In this most recent major work, Milltown, he features the classic 1920's architecture of the municipal building, unique quadruple arched bridge and the flowing waters of the timeless Brandywine.
The edition was printed on the finest quality 100% acid free paper. Each print has been personally inspected, signed and numbered by the artist.
