What's New and What's Here

The following is a non-exhaustive list of amenities and establishments found in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood.

What's Here!


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. When McCaskey High School was erected approximately 20 years later, this building began to serve other academic purposes including a stint as the central office of the district. It is a unique and venerable structure that remains quite functional, even at the ripe old age of 89.
