Sorry to keep you waiting Phoenixville. The publication of the correct answer to the October 23 iteration of Then and Now was delayed last Monday due to a storm a few of you might have heard about. So, quick programming update, we're running the answer edition today, then starting a fresh Then and Now on Tuesday, the answer of which will be revealed the following Monday. (Unless we get another once-in-a-century storm. Which seems unlikely.)
Oh, and last week's winner was Bud Benkoski. Congrats Bud! The answer, via the Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area, is below:
257 Gay Street. This was the ’Yellow Schoolhouse’ constructed in 1837 at the northeast corner of Church and Gay Streets under the supervision of Joseph Whitaker. The school building was later converted into a dwelling. It was the home of Dr. C. M. Benham for many years. The building now houses the offices for Phoenixville Area Community Services.
