PHOENIXVILLE >> The Historical Society of the Phoenixville Area has announced it will be open the first Saturday of each month.

Hours on First Saturdays will be from noon to 2 p.m., starting in April. Visitors will be able to access the archives and the museum in order to conduct research, learn about the history of Phoenixville, and view exhibits on display.
