As of 2009, a little less than 35,000 people live in Chester County. It was one of seven counties created from the Old Camden Judicial District, which was formed in 1769. Visitors to Chester County can enjoy a day exploring Sumter National Forest, playing a round of golf at the Chester Golf Club, or picnicking at the Landsford Canal State Park.
