About the Facility:

Jim Moffett 6/15/13The Lenfest Center, named for Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest whose generous support made the facility possible, was completed in June, 2013. Its hilltop setting offers sweeping views of the 1,263-acre ChesLen Preserve with its rolling crop fields and lush woodlands, providing a breathtaking setting for your special event.

The indoor space’s exposed-beam construction and expansive windows  are complimented by a large flagstone patio and pavilion with two wood-burning fireplaces. This space is sure to inspire your guests as they take in the beauty of the preserve’s stunning landscape. An attached deck overlooks the woodlands and provides a tranquil space for appetizers or a cocktail reception.
