Over 5.2 million dollars was raised by PAEDCO to achieve this goal. The Schuylkill River Heritage Center has now become a unique, interpretive place to experience the pictures and pieces of the past that give everyone a better understanding of Phoenixville’s Iron and Steel legacy and its place in the Schuylkill River’s history.
Here at the Heritage Center there are also video presentations that introduce visitors to both Chester County and the Schuylkill River watershed. Another video presentation recounts the history of the Phoenix Iron and Steel Company. There is also a video that tells the story of Phoenixville and the Schuylkill River Region. Enjoy your visit!
