Anyone know anything about the Kimberton section of Phoenixville? I haven't been through that town for 20 years - before I knew what a puppy mill was (Kimbertal Kennels). Seems as though there are a good number of properties which give you a nice half acre of land and that the area is still semi-rural.
Any opinions on life in that small town?

It's a nice town which for the lack of a better description has a "town and country meets crunchy granola" vibe to it, which I find a refreshing change from most of the Philadelphia region. The puppy mill style folks have moved on I believe. There is a Kimberton Whole Foods store there ( the original, hence the name) which is a nice asset as well.

Thanks, kyle. Unfortunately, the Kimbertal puppy mill is still there, off Pughtown Rd. I knew there was a fire a while ago, whereby hundreds of puppies died ...but nothing is going to send that place out of business. Thanks for the info.

I think the area is still a bit on the Pennsyltucky side of things if you know what I mean. Phoenixville is becoming a nice place but it still feels sketchy on some parts of Bridge Street and there are sketchy people and places near downtown.

I moved to the area just recently and I love it here. Phoenixville has a great downtown area. The housing in Kimberton and E. Pikeland, along with the outskirts of the Phoenixville borough offer very nice affordable options. We purchased our 3 bd. 2 1/2 bath townhouse, located inside the P-ville borough (bordering Schuylkill Township) for under 200k and could not be happier.
