Paoli Battlefield is 44-acre historic site in Malvern, Pennsylvania, which was the location of the small but vicious battle during the American Revolution in September 1777. The battle was fought near the Paoli Tavern, a famous local landmark at the time. The Battlefield has been preserved in its original form, as a woodland and farm fields. There was a monument on the grave of those who died during the battle, and a stone wall that protects it. The monument is one of the oldest Revolutionary War battle. Adjacent 22 acres of land was acquired to be used in the19th century as a drill field and parade ground for Chester and Delaware County militia. In 1877, at the Centennial of the battle, a new granite obelisk was placed, and the original stone wall around the grave was replaced by a decorative iron fence. In 1996, the Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund was created to purchase the site, mark it with explanatory plaques, and open it to the public.
