Parker Ford is a Community in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Settled in the early eighteenth century, Parker's Ford was the site of a grist and saw mill by 1720. Located on a much-used path from Philadelphia into the western back-country and with easy access to the Schuylkill River, Parker's Ford was a welcomed resting place for travelers during the mid-18th century. In 1776 a tavern was constructed at the Ford which solidified the location's importance to travel in Pennsylvania. As with other roadside oases on colonial thoroughfares, Parker's Ford became a place of entertainment, trade, and shelter for all who used it. By the time of the American Revolution, the complex was a busy hostelry on the "Great Road" from Philadelphia to Reading and the west. In September 1777, General Washington and his men, on their "race for the fords," crossed the Schuylkill at Parker's Ford. Though it was one of the more shallow fords on the river, heavy rainfall delayed the crossing. While he waited for the river to recede, Washington used the Parker's Ford tavern as his temporary headquarters.
