Pottsville

Venture into Schuylkill County and discover Pottsville, an area defined by hardworking people who believe the integrity of the past is a driving force to make their future even better. Where high school classrooms are housed in a “Castle on a Hill” guarded by the Crimson Tide; and where one of the nation’s finest lagers has been brewed for generations bearing the Yuengling family name. There’s a lifetime of music in Pottsville ranging from the Civil War Era’s Third Brigade Band to the newly formed Anthracite Philharmonic. Writer John O’Hara drew some of his greatest literary inspiration from life on Mahantongo Street while some of vaudeville’s biggest headliners entertained thousands when they played the Sovereign Majestic. The embers of the anthracite hey-day of Pottsville continue to fuel a town filled with civic pride and entrepreneurial spirit.

Get to know the fascinating people of Pottsville, and see through their eyes why this closely-knit, yet diverse community near the “hidden river” in Schuylkill County is the only place they’d ever want to call home, as WVIA presents “Our Town Pottsville,” produced in partnership with The Republican-Herald.
