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.

My fiancé and I are getting married at the Foundry in November 2021 and I can already tell it is going to run so smoothly! Ariane was a pleasure to work with getting the contract signed so quickly amid all the corona virus issues that have brought a lot of businesses to a halt. She was extremely responsive and was also able to help me meet my budget, which I am extremely grateful for. The Foundry is absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait until my wedding day and am looking forward to the entire planning process!Sent on 04/12/2020

We LOVE the foundry!
The foundry has been extremely attentive and helpful with rescheduling our wedding! We had planned to get married at the end of May but due to the virus we had to reschedule to a later date. Ariane and Scott have gone above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the date selected. We cannot wait to get married at the foundry, there really is no other venue like it!!!Sent on 04/17/2020
Phoenixville Foundry's reply:Thank you, Emily! We appreciate your wonderful review and we're looking forward to your May 2021 wedding!

Fantastic experience amid uncertain times.
We are thrilled to be working with the Phoenixville Foundry, especially Ariane Graham and Ashley Z., to throw our dream wedding. We were originally scheduled to get married in April, and Ashley was incredible with keeping us organized and on task, offering suggestions, allowing menu customization, and beyond. The Foundry itself is gorgeous, and everything we tasted from J. Scott Catering was delicious! The entire planning experience with Ashley was a breeze, and I never thought I would say that about wedding planning.Sent on 03/18/2020
When we unfortunately had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID-19, Ariane Graham was extremely helpful, organized, and understanding during a very confusing time for everyone. She stepped up to the plate, delivered unfortunate news with empathy, and helped us create a new plan of action for our wedding. I am just as excited for our July wedding at the Foundry as I was for our original April date. Thank you Ariane for helping us and so many other couples navigate these unfortunate circumstances!
Phoenixville Foundry's reply:Thank you for the review! We are so happy to be able to help and do whatever we can to help out wonderful clients during this uncertain time!
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!!!
