West Chester's first public square, dedicated in 1848. Recognized in the late 19th century for having one of the best collections of trees and shrubs with 160 distinct species. Named in honor of Humphry Marshall (1722 - 1801), a world-renowned botanist from Chester County and cousin of John Bartram. In 1764, Marshall constructed a conservatory on his farm for the culture of rare plants. His definitive book on native American trees and shrubs, Arbustrum Americanum is recognized as the first treatise written by an American on American plants. His home still stands in the village of Marshallton.
