Molly Maguire’s Pub – Pic of the day
Today we swinging by Molly Maguire’s Pub in Phoenixville for our “Pic of the Day”. The Irish had a large influence in building the east coast, and the presence is still felt today. They weren’t quite as influential in the Lancaster County area as the Dutch and German Anabaptist communities. There were Irish out this way, but presences was broader and broader as you get closer to Philadelphia. It makes sense really. Many of the immigrants were drawn to the manufacturing and factory jobs then farming. So they tending to stick around areas where those types of jobs were available.
Our trip for last year’s Firebird Festival was my first time (at least that I remember) going to Phoenixville. We had that weird mix of excited and completely lost at the same time. I personally love that feeling. I love rolling into a new town and seeing what’s around. Phoenixville did not disappoint. This pub stood out in my memory very strongly.
I didn’t actually get a chance to go into Molly Maquire’s Pub, but it is on my to-do list. I remember having to stop here at light, and because it was the day of the festival there were a bunch of people all over the place. With this beautiful Pub as the backdrop it was like something out of a movie. We literally let out a collective “wow”. That’s why I like going into new areas and exploring. The littlest things get you all excited.
