Welcome to Historic Chester—Morris County's renowned business community—with its nostalgic "Home Town" country atmosphere for shopping, dining and exploring!

Reminiscent of America's old-time mercantile district, it's a trip down memory lane as you stroll the brick sidewalks; admire the preserved building facades and revel in the time-worn beauty that is still the very essence of 'Main Street'.

Locals and tourists alike discover unique gifts daily in many of our 80+ specialty shops that feature highly sought-after antiques, crafts, clothing, jewelry, artwork, home furnishings and accessories, pet products and pet grooming, to name just a few. Of course, while you're in town, you'll want to indulge in the distinctive culinary artistry and innovative cuisines found at our restaurants and the scrumptious confections and gourmet chocolates offered at our sweet shops.

Chester is also home to The Streets of Chester Shopping Center, one of the Best Craft Shows in the nation, numerous farms and parks... and the renowned Cooper Gristmill, offering a full-day of excitement for both family and friends.

Historic Chester has something for everyone and is sure to provide you with a shopping and dining experience that will create lasting memories. We invite you to visit this charming setting we call home, where discovering the unexpected is part of the attraction!
