Phoenixville, PA Murals

After the Phoenix Steel Company closed in 1987 and many businesses shut down, the Phoenixville Area Economic Development Corporation (PAEDCO) wanted to revitalize downtown Phoenixville. Michael Webb, professor of art at Drexel University and Meg Saligman, active in the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, became involved in PAEDCO to paint a mural on the entire 40’ by 80’ wall that depicted the history and people of Phoenixville.
Located at: Corner of Bridge and Main Streets, Phoenixville.

The Gateway Pharmacy has been family-owned and operated since the early 1950s.
