Fortunately, years later the building was renovated to uphold the history in Phoenixville. Later in 2006, Hankin Real Estate Group acquired the estate. Their goal was to design a space that mixed old and new. They wanted to celebrate the history of the area while bringing in modern elements to the event space. Now with 18,000 square feet and a beautiful story to tell, Phoenixville Foundry continues to give back to the town and any couple they host.
