Historic Pottstown Walking TourPottstown's growing importance as a regional manufacturing center prompted the Reading Co. to upgrade its facilities here in the 1920's. On the 26th of December in 1924, the Reading Co. revealed plans for the construction of a new $1,000,000 passenger and freight station in Pottstown. The Reading Co. purchased five homes on Hanover St. and several business properties on the south side of the tracks and underwrote the cost of the new plants for Pottstown Cold Storage and Auchenbach Wholesale Grocery Co.
