The most authentic restoration of all the buildings in Sugartown is the William Garret House.  Although it is a private home, walk by the 1825  Hannah Cheever House  then visit the Bank Barn.  Sharpless Worrall was a prominent citizen and helped form the Elk Lodge which was a part of the Independent Order of  Odd Fellows.
This organization was dedicated to the welfare of their members including death benefits, aid to the sick and helped take care of widows and  orphans,  Finally, The Carriage Museum was opened in 2010 with the Chester County Historical Society.
