Pottstown, PA is a borough in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania about 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia and 20 miles southeast of Reading, on the Schuylkill River. Pottstown was laid out in 1752–53 and named Pottsgrove in honor of its founder, John Potts. The old name was abandoned at the time of the incorporation as a borough in 1815. In 1888, the limits of the borough were considerably extended. Pottstown is the center of a productive farming and dairying region.
In the past, its iron and steel interests were very extensive. There were large rolling mills, furnaces, nail works, textile mills, bridge works, agricultural-implement works, boiler and machine shops, foundries, and manufactories of bricks, silks, shirts, hosiery, etc. The population is estimated at 22,377.
Modern-day Pottstown is established on land originally deeded to William Penn. Germans, Swedes and English were among the first European settlers in the area. After establishment of the first iron forge in 1714, Pottstown’s fortunes became tied to the iron industry.
Eventually, blast furnaces for production of iron and later steel opened in the area. Iron and steel production brought the Potts family, iron masters by trade, to the area. They established a forge in the area and built a large home just west of the Manatawny Creek. John Potts founded a town in 1761 on part of the 995 acres that he owned. It is the home of the country’s oldest mills, Pottstown Roller Mill.
Over time, Pottsgrove grew and in 1815, was incorporated under the name Pottstown becoming the second borough in Pennsylvania after Norristown.
The Philadelphia & Reading Railroad mainline between Reading and Philadelphia reached Pottstown in 1838. The extension of the railroad to Mount Carbon in 1842 facilitated the movement of raw materials and finished goods which helped Pottstown’s economy to grow. In the few years following the extension of the railroad, the population grew from 600 to 1,850 residents. Pottstown’s metal production grew and notably, steel from the borough was used in the Panama Canal and Golden Gate Bridge.
In 1944, the borough adopted a city manager form of government. By 1964, the borough saw the need to re-organize the municipal government. At the time, it had one of the largest borough councils in the state, with 20 members. This was reduced to seven members in redrawn wards.
The High Street Historic District, Old Pottstown Historic District, Pottsgrove Mansion, Grubb Mansion, Jefferson Elementary School, Pottstown Roller Mill, Reading Railroad Pottstown Station, and Henry Antes House are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
