Editor’s note: We are glad that the Senior Center will stay in the borough of Pottstown where it belongs. Furthermore, we are happy to see the former Pottstown Health Club building be reoccupied before it turns into a blighted property! A win-win by all accounts!
POTTSTOWN, PA — After years of searching, the Pottstown Area Senior Center has finally found a new home: the former Pottstown Health Club site on Moser Road.
It was 1997 when the decision was made to leave the senior center’s former downtown home, the former Eagles building, and move into space in the expanded YMCA.
But a decade later, with both organizations growing, both needed more space. And so the search began.
Locations investigated included the former East Penn AAA building on South Hanover and South Street and the former Dames Chevrolet dealership on High Street, as well as the former Giant supermarket, former Super-Fresh (now site of Wawa) and St. Pius X High School.
