About the Charles E. Piper Award
Charles Piper can be best described as resilient, visionary and dynamic.¬†As one of the first settlers to the area, Mr. Piper‚Äôs work began in the 1890‚Äôs and allowed for the current day Berwyn.¬†Against the odds and using his own private funds, he built the hub of Berwyn, the Berwyn Train Station; assisted with the high quality and stringent building standards which produced our City of Homes; and laid out a land plan which produced multiple business corridors and diversity for the city‚Äôs tax base.
