UCF Historical Bus Tours

Attention all history enthusiasts and community members! We are thrilled to announce that as part of the Centennial Celebration the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District is embarking on an exciting venture to showcase the rich historical heritage of our beloved community. We are introducing captivating historical bus tours that will take you on a journey through time, revealing the fascinating sights and untold stories that have shaped our community and district. 

The 90 - 120 minute trip will cover historical sites of local significance in East Marlborough, West Marlborough, Pocopson, and Newlin Townships. A stop at the restored Locust Grove School in Pocopson Township will allow visitors to experience what the life of a student was like in a one room schoolhouse. 

These immersive tours will be held one Saturday OR Sunday each month, and we extend a warm invitation to everyone in the community to join us. Each tour has a maximum capacity of 30.  All participants must register in advance to reserve your seat.  


Please note that all future bus tours are full at this time. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please email with the date(s) you would like to attend, your name, phone number, email and number of people in your party. 

The UCFSD Communications Department will contact you the week leading up to the tour in the event seats open up. The waitlist is first come, first serve and does not guarantee you a spot on a scheduled tour date.
