Phoenixville Ghost Tours Extend Season

Popular demand and sold-out tour nights have convinced locally-owned Ghost Tours of Phoenixville to extend their fall schedule. The walking tour of the state’s “most haunted borough” has been extended and is now running from September 13th through November 5th.

Owner and Phoenixville resident Andrea Berger is in the 10th year of entertaining tour-goers with collected stories and experiences of our town’s historical and paranormal events. “We are glad to have so much demand for the Ghost Tours,” said Andrea Berger, “so opening the dates up for extra weeks seemed like a great idea. We hated having to turn people away last year, when we operated only for the month of October.”

“The fall is a perfect time to be out and about in Phoenixville,” added Andrea Berger. “We’ve had everyone from school groups, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, and groups of couples ready for an entertaining evening sign up for our walking tours.”

The guided, story-driven tour of the town’s historically haunted spots lasts about 90 minutes on each Friday and Saturday night of the season, weather permitting. The tour begins and ends at the Pickering Creek Inn at 37 Bridge Street.

To reserve a spot, call (215) 237-1166 or learn more about it at GhostToursofPhoenixville.com.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
