Kimberton is an unincorporated community in East Pikeland Township in Chester County, Pennsylvania, United States. The zip code is 19442. Originally settled in the late 18th century, it was not named until 1817. Like many surrounding villages, Kimberton developed around a tavern; in this case, the tavern was called Chrisman's. In 1796, the Chrisman's Mill began operating, drawing activity to the tiny village. It operated until 1938 and is currently the town's post office. Its current[when?] population is 7,901.[citation needed]
