The Upper Uwchlan Township Historic Commission was established in 1989 to help preserve the history and historic structures of the Chester County, Pennsylvania township. The Historic Commission maintains a collection of approximately 17 linear feet of archival materials dating from 1829 to 2005, including manuscripts from local families as well as secondary-source subject files relating to the people, buildings, property, organizations, and other aspects of Upper Uwchlan Township. The property files are a particularly convenient resource for local property researchers or home owners. Also of special interest are papers from prominent local educator Abraham Fetters, Jr., including some Civil War documents and items pertaining to local schools, including the Edgefield Institute (a private co-ed academy run by Abraham Fetters Jr. out of his home, 1868-1884).
