The Chad House, built by John Wyeth, Jr. (no relation to the Wyeth family of artists) for John Chads, is located in Chadds Ford.  The house was built after 1712 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 11, 1971. During the Battle of Brandywine General Wilhelm von Knyphausen’s division feigned a direct attack across the Brandywine near the ferry built by Chad, and exchanged cannon fire with George Washington’s forces in fortified positions above the house.
