Hockessin's Historic Fenimore House, built in 1763

Along a well traveled road of Lancaster Pike sits a well-groomed house of history.  The Fenimore house, as it is called as of recent years and owners, lies just north beyond the intersection of Valley Rd. and Rt. 41.  It has been there for 250 years this year, built in 1763!  In that time, it has experienced much of the history that we can only read about now in textbooks; the beginnings of Hockessin, the building of the town, its people and their professions, times of war, and of course, its residents.
The interior of the house is truly breathtaking, with polished hardwood floors, beautiful 18th century shelving and closets, 6 fireplaces, 19th century door handles and 20-inch granite walls.  Located in the original part of the house, the exam room consists of a radiological machine, surrounded by an original bay window made of wavy double-paned glass.  In addition to the interior fixtures, a beautiful expansive 900 square foot addition was annexed with several large windows overlooking the wilderness.  The consignments of this space include a private consultation room, state of the art chiropractic equipment, and are accented by recessed lighting that is used to enhance the natural light.  This beautiful space consists of 1700 sq. ft., and is occupied by Dr. Chad Laurence of Corrective Chiropractic. In addition, it has a vibrant massage and acupuncture room, as well as a therapy room for acute patients with pain. 
Total health improvement is an integrative process, which Dr. Laurence and his team of staff and massage therapists are committed to.  Because of their unique interests, many of their patients are referred to them by medical doctors, other chiropractors, massage therapists, and of course, from other patients.
To celebrate this monumental birthday, Dr. Chad Laurence of Corrective Chiropractic, along with his  neighbors, Stacia’s Mastery and Body Mind Spirit Massage, are inviting the community for refreshments and a tour of the building, built in 1763, On Wednesday, March 20th, 2013, from 5-8pm. Woodside Creamery, founded in 1796, will be at Corrective Chiropractic offering various ice-creams. Chef’s Haven of Hockessin, a local specialty food store that offers cooking classes to the community, will also be on hand, showcasing various dishes and appetizers. Robyn’s Nest Catering will also be serving hot hor’dourves. Stacia’s Mastery and Body Mind Spirit Massage will be serving catered, healthy delights, and will be doing informal presentations on essential oils, bodywork and cleansing. Parking will be tight, so please carpool and consider parking at our neighboring businesses down the hill, on Rt. 41 and Valley Rd.
Dr. Chad Laurence is one of only two doctors in Delaware, and among only a few in Pennsylvania, who is certified in Chiropractic Biophysics® (CBP®). Fewer than 400 doctors worldwide have been CBP certified.  Services at Corrective Chiropractic include chiropractic care, acupuncture, and oriental medicine, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, corrective exercises, spinal and postural screenings, lifestyle advice, and physiotherapy.  A three-phase approach to each patient addresses relief of symptoms as necessary, corrective/restorative care to ensure symptoms have been managed successfully, and routine chiropractic protection for ongoing spinal correction and good health.
