The fund was established by Charles C. Hadley in his 1916 will, and augmented by his sister, Irene Hadley Baird, to honor their parents, Theodore D. and Elizabeth A. Hadley. He directed that admission shall be free.
The programs are for the civic betterment, social welfare and education of the people of Kennett Square and the surrounding country.
Hadley’s will charged the Kennett Friends Meeting and the Philadelphia Ethical Society to select committee members to direct the fund.
