The Marshalton Inn

The Inn Present Day

The Marshalton Inn, outside West Chester in the village of Marshallton, Pennsylvania, is a classic example of an historic Pennsylvania inn with Early Federal style architecture. The building was built by Joseph Woodward in 1793 then sold to his son-in-law in 1802. Because of its location on Strasburg Road, which was a popular travel route between Philadelphia and Pittsburg, the house was converted into an inn and tavern two years later. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1977. The American Brasserie style restaurant is open Thursday-Sunday at 5 PM and also caters to private events.

The Four Dogs Tavern

Built 10 years after the Marshalton Inn to serve as a stable, the now Four Dogs Tavern shares the same elegant dining menu with a casual, rustic atmosphere. Patrons line up to experience the “destination spot” that is the outdoor patio during the summer months. The Tavern is open everyday at 11:30 AM and hosts live music on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday nights.

Kassandra Flamouri

Writer-turned-Musician-turned Writer, Kassandra discovered her love for writing, both music and words, at an early age. She split her time between writing poetry, short stories, fan-fictions, and of course, music. She attended the Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg College, where she learned to translate both emotional and programatic content into music. Now, as an exam prep and college essay tutor, she has the time and flexibility to really dig into fiction again. Her work has appeared online and in print in such venues as Timeless Tales Magazine and Quantum Fairy Tales.

Stewards of Eden

non-profit – christian environmentalism

What does it mean to be a Steward of Creation? As children of the loving God, this was the first job He gave to us and it was perfectly designed. “And God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1: 28). And although we are His children and He does love us, the word “dominion” in its original Hebrew text does not carry the same meaning most people think when they hear “dominion.” Rather in its original text, “dominion” means to nourish. With this new understanding, it is revealed to us that Creation belongs to God and was entrusted to us to be loved and cared for. As the sons and daughters to His throne, it is our honor to care for the earth and all her animals. Creation is not our entitlement but our responsibility.

As Creation is designed to reveal the majesty of God, the current condition of God’s earth reveals that we have abandoned our role as stewards. We are polluting oceans, changing climate, spilling oil, creating dead rivers and bays, cutting down forests, and overflowing landfills. We attempt to capture the wonders of the hands of God through a glass wall, but we have forgotten to walk barefoot on holy ground. We have removed ourselves from the garden, forgetting that we are all stewards of His earth. Where we once held handfuls of fresh harvest, we now un-crinkle plastic wrappings, revealing nutrient-stripped “foods” .  Biodiversity and responsible agricultural practices pushed aside for dangerous short cuts leading us off the path of righteousness. Our actions leave trails of disease and destruction upon God’s earth. It is a Christian’s responsibility to be aware of how our actions effect God’s Creation and it is our honor to make the changes in our lives that reclaim our role as Stewards of Eden.
