COVID-19 Cancellations and Closure
To All Our Members, Friends and Visitors:
Because of our care and concern for everyone, the Schuylkill River Heritage Center will be closed through the month of May.
The Story of Trails and Parks Throughout the USA, featuring Steve Elkinton, who worked at the National Park Service for 36 years, was planned for Tuesday, April 14th. It has been postponed. This event is now scheduled for Tuesday, November 10th at 7:30 PM, at the Schuylkill River Heritage Center. We hope to reopen in May, depending on the spread and scope of the Covid-19 virus in the greater Phoenixville region and PA closure mandates.
While you cannot visit the museum at this time, please visit our website to learn more about Phoenixville’s and the Schuylkill River’s industrial legacies. You can click on PHOENIX BRIDGES and STRUCTURES and its interactive maps to see images of bridges and structures all across the USA produced by the Phoenix Iron and Steel Company.
Although the Heritage Center is closed at this time, there are many monthly expenses for which our non-profit organization is still responsible. Also, while we are closed, we hope that work can proceed to make critical and necessary changes to our interactive exhibits, but we need your help to meet all of these expenses. A contribution of any amount would be very much appreciated. Please send your donation to the Schuylkill River Heritage Center, P.O. Box 427, Phoenixville, PA 19460.
