Pottstown is a borough located in southeast Pennsylvania approximately 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The town lies along the Schuylkill River in what is known as the "Tri-County Area," which includes Berks, Chester and Montgomery County. As of the 2000 census, Pottstown had a population of 21,859 residents. In the late 1800s, Pottstown was known as "Boomtown USA" with iron factories attracting hundreds of workers from nearby Philadelphia and beyond. The borough of Pottstown has received a lot of recognition in the metal industries due to some very significant projects, including the Panama Canal and the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, Pottstown has undergone a revitalization and its' lovely tree-lined downtown offers a variety of shopping, restaurants, hotels and antique shops. Attractions include historic railroad bridges, hiking, biking, fishing, golf, and horseback riding. An art gallery called Gallery on High is located in a fully restored Victorian building in the town's historic district. Pottstown is also just a short drive to the Valley Forge National Historic Park and Philadelphias museums, historical landmarks, fine restaurants and nightlife. In addition, the convenient location of the Tri-County area puts you within an easy drive of Atlantic City or the Pocono Mountains. Pottstown also hosts several special events each year, including the Annual Scottish/Irish Festival.
