What's New and What's Here
The following is a non-exhaustive list of amenities and establishments found in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood.
Fulton Elementary School
This school is named in honor of the inventor of the steamboat, Robert Fulton. The building currently known as Fulton Elementary School was constructed in 1917 as the Lancaster Boys' High School.
