WEST BRADFORD: Celebrating Trimbleville

My friend Linda Kaat asked me to mention that the Friends of Martin's Tavern (of which she is president and founder) will be unveiling a "Trimbleville Historic District" marker at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at 311 Broad Run Road in West Bradford Township. 
Trimbleville takes its name from Irish immigrant James Trimble. During the Revolutionary War, on Sept. 11, 1777, the British troops crossed the west branch of the Brandywine at Trimble's Ford, then turned east at Trimbleville en route to their victory at the Battle of the Brandywine.
