Please Help the Schuylkill River Heritage Center to Recreate the Historic Phoenix Wheel
Please help the Schuylkill River Heritage Center raise funds to restore and install the Phoenix Wheel, the oldest of its kind in the world, and an artifact representing Phoenixville’s industrial legacy.
The total project cost for this ambitious endeavor is very costly. Every donation brings us a step closer to breathing life back into this majestic monument. By contributing, you’re not just preserving a part of history, you’re also playing an integral part in revitalizing Phoenixville, transforming a former industrial space into a vibrant cultural hub that pays homage to our shared past.
The Phoenix Wheel’s revival is more than just restoring an artifact – it is about community, heritage, and the power of preserving our shared history for future generations. We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey. With your help, the Phoenix Wheel will turn again, a symbol of our resilience, our shared history, and a beacon for the future. Join us as we bring the past into the present for a brighter future. Donate today and become a part of this incredible journey.
Please send your donation to: Schuylkill River Heritage Center, PO BOX 427, Phoenixville PA 19460
