“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” – George Washington

In Honor of Bryan Thorpe

Our lifelong friend Bryan Thorpe passed away suddenly on September 5, 2020. Bryan was a dedicated volunteer and served multiple terms as a director on the Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates’ Board. Bryan was the loving son of George and Judy Thorpe, Chadds Ford. We will miss his energy, compassion and steadfast abilities. Bryan’s amazing laugh echoes in our hearts.

Please help us to honor Bryan’s life.  Bryan’s Beautification Project, at Brandywine Battlefield Park, will celebrate Bryan’s life. The Project will replant trees and plant life that were lost at the Park due to recent storms. This project includes, but is not limited to, Historical tree planting, installation of paths to improve mobility and benches where we can rest and reflect.
