Elverson Field Trip

Elverson is a borough in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The population was 1,225 people at the 2010 census. In 1899, the settlement was named Elverson after James Elverson, owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer. James Elverson would also donate a stained glass window to a church in the town.The Elverson Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 1.0 square mile.

In 2011 an Elverson resident, Stuart Connelly, began the filming of his first major production, The Suspect. This 96 minute feature-length film was picked up by Modoc Spring, a production company. Connelly, the film’s writer and director, knew he wanted to use Elverson and the surrounding area as the location for a film some day. The film was released to theaters in 2013. Connelly is also the director for the films Natural Selection and American Gothic.

Mr.Vanemon and his 4th block Advanced Photography class took a field trip to Elverson in December 2017. It was a cold, brisk, partly cloudy day. Upon arrival, some of the class went to see the buildings, while some wandered through Livingood park to take pictures around the gazebos. The students had fun and took great pictures. Mr.vanemon will miss all of his students after the semester ends.
