Back in Time

The area known know as Phoenixville was first settled in 1732. However, it was not until 1829 that the city was incorporated with the name changed from Manavon to Phoenixville. The city was named for its largest employer, Phoenix Iron Works. Phoenix Iron Works (originally called, the French Creek Nail Works), was built in 1790 and was the first nail factory in the country. The booming industries that began moving into the city started to draw in residents, causing a rapid increase in growth. The iron factory shut its doors many years later in 1987.

Made New Again

Phoenixville maintains its historical roots throughout the city, so if you want to learn all you can about where you live, you will not have to travel far. First opened in 1903, the Colonial Theater is one of a kind. Owned by the Association for the Colonial Theater, full restorations have been done in order for visitors and residents to take full advantage of the theaters offerings. Independent performing arts ventures and films are shown in the theater, along with other productions of holiday classics and children‰Ûªs musicals. While the building retains some of its old time charm, guests can still enjoy up-to-date performances.
