Lando is tucked away in eastern Chester County, along the flood plains of Fishing Creek. The quiet community has existed for more than 240 years. Originally settled by yeoman Phillip Walker, who established a plantation, gristmill, and sawmill, Lando became home to Manetta Mills and, for more than 80 years, was one of the world's largest manufacturers of blankets. Lando and Manetta Mills,
owned and operated by the Heath family, became a way of life to the residents of the mill hill. There were baseball teams, churches, bands, trains, rivers, schools, and textiles. In Images of America: Lando, readers will experience day-to-day life in a small mill community and see how neighbors and coworkers lived and worked together. Lando shows the commitment of the Heath family to the community, the
workers, and their product. The Heath family did not only invest in the development of Manetta Mills, they also invested in the lives of hundreds of people who have affected thousands of others.
