This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!

The Gables at Chadds Ford is situated on land that was originally part of a 138 acre land grant from William Penn to Brinton King. Around 1745, a pre-Revolutionary style house was built on the property. This was one of the first homes to be built in Pennsbury Township. For the next 100 plus years, the property operated as a working farm and quietly became part of the Brandywine Valley’s history. The route along Route One is well known to have housed numerous stops for the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. It has been suspected that the King house may have been one of these stops.

The house was renovated in the late 1800s by George C. King, son of Brinton King. He adopted the popular Victorian style by adding wrap around porches and twenty three gables. Two of the four original chimneys from the pre-Revolutionary style home are still visible. In March of 2002, the house was placed on the National Historic Register.

Earlier this year, Ann and Dan Kolenick purchased the Gables. The couple has made some exciting changes to the historic property including: The Gables Dinner Club—a great dining rewards program for loyal customers, a new website, a new Twitter account, expanded operating hours now serving lunch Saturdays and Mondays, and live music every Thursday 6pm to 9pm.

Now one lucky AML fan has a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to this Brandywine Valley dining gem!
