Phoenixville is a borough of Chester County, Pennsylvania, just a short drive outside the limits of the city. It is still considered part of the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. As of the 2010 census, the population of the borough was 16,440. With the median household income at around $50,000, much of Phoenixville is part of the middle working class.
Phoenixville was settled in 1732 and incorporated as a borough about a hundred years later. It was initially known as Manavon. In the early 20th century, it experienced an industrial boom. The area became known for its manufacturing, iron, and steel mills like the Phoenix Iron Works, silk mill, hosiery and match factories. Phoenixville also exported Etruscan majolica pottery pieces, which are now highly valuable collectibles.
Though the mills have closed, for the most part, the town remains a mecca of industry, with steel being its primary product. The town’s hard-working, humble roots still reach its heart today.
