Meet at mini-park, river side of Main St. between Gay and Connaroe Sts. Often referred to as the "Manchester of America," learn about this former mill town's industrial development along the Schuylkill River canal that was opened in 1825, connecting Philadelphia to the interior coal regions of Pennsylvania. See examples of early immigrant housing then stroll along Main Street's late 19th century commercial buildings and enjoy the fruits of its recent renaissance.
