In 1882, the foundry of Phoenix Iron & Steel Company was built along the French Creek. It prospered until the 1970s and played a huge role in the area’s booming steel industry. However, after the steel industry declined, the Phoenixville Area Economic Development Corporation took it over in 1998. The organization raised enough funds to restore the building, while historic aspects like the large wooden cantilever crane were kept in place. In 2006, Hankin Group acquired the property and transformed it into an event space based on elegant and modern design. The venue has now been hosting weddings for five years and counting.
The Foundry is near French Creek, Schuylkill River, Lock 60 Recreation Area and Valley Forge National Historical Park. It is a 44-minute drive from downtown Philadelphia and a 43-minute drive from Philadelphia International Airport. Wilmington, Delaware and Trenton, New Jersey are both 57 minutes away.

Fantastic day at memorable venue
My husband and I could not recommend the Phoenixville Foundry more. The space is elegant but not ostentatious. It's plenty spacious (our wedding had 230 guests), and the catering (J. Scott Catering) is excellent. Jaime and I had both our ceremony as well at the reception on site. With a good florist (we will review the wonderful Jessa Sommerfield of Sommerfield Designs separately), the Foundry provides a gorgeous ceremonial space. Lastly, our coordinators - Ariane Graham and Tessa Narins - were supremely organized and efficient. They also replied to all questions and concerns timely and courteously. Furthermore, the Foundry features tons of excellent indoor and outdoor photographic vantage points. Among my favorites is the upper level, where you can capture the stunning cylindrical crystalline light fixtures in the backdrop. Do yourself a favor and book this place!

Incredible! Fabulous! Perfection! This venue is a one-of-a-kind, unique, chic, elegant, and memorable location for a wedding and other corporate and private celebrations. JScott Catering and its professional staff did everything expected of a first-class company to meet and exceed our expectations. All food was prepared and cooked to order on-site. Everything was fresh and top shelf in both preparation and presentation. Ten servers circling each table with freshly-cooked food could not be matched! As the parents of the bride, we couldn't begin to process all the compliments we received from our guests. Most importantly, the newly married couple were treated like royalty from the minute they stepped onto the property. All of this was possible because of two of the most attentive, kind, and knowledgeable event planners we could have had. Ariane and Tessa are first-class and top-notch in every way. Thank you Phoenixville Foundry! Thank you JScott Catering! Thank you Ariane and Tessa! Ron and Sandie

Alia and Caroline were absolutely awesome!!! For the most part I spoke with Alia and she was THEE most down to earth person. I would call/email them and they would respond in a timely manner, sometimes within minutes. Any time i was freaking out about something, they always had a resolution and made me feel good by the end of the conversation. It was such a pleasure working with them. I will miss you guys!!!
I've shot several weddings at the Foundry. I love the style and feel of the whole venue. It can be a challenge, but a great photographer can create some of the most unique, creative, and elegant shots from this amazing venue which can't be replicated anywhere else! One of a kind :)
Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
Unique venue easy to reach and ample parking. The list of caterers are all great but the people who run the show are rock stars of service. Our clients love it!!!
