Overview
Phoenixville follows the path of a burgeoning Chester County community situated along the Schuylkill River. Beginning with the twilight of the 19th century and continuing through the dawn of a new millennium, vintage images are used in tandem with modern photography to illustrate the course the community has taken over the last century. Take a journey back in time to revisit the Phoenix Steel Corporation, horse-drawn carriages traveling along Bridge Street, and the rural character of Maple Lawn Farm.
