Built in 1882 along the French Creek, the foundry of Phoenix Iron & Steel Company poured iron castings well into the 1970’s and is considered Phoenixville’s and Northern Chester County’s most important symbol of the town’s illustrious industrial past.

Abandoned after the decline of the steel industry, it was marked as the centerpiece of Phoenixville’s economic regeneration and in 1998 the Phoenixville Area Economic Development Corporation (PAEDCO) took ownership of the building. As a charitable, non-profit organization, PAEDCO raised the necessary funds to restore the shell of this historic icon and construct a visitor’s center.

Under the guidance of the National Park Service, PAEDCO undertook exterior renovations to bring the building into this century while retaining the industrial and dramatic character of the building.
