Spring City Hotel and Restaurant Logo

        In 1892, Mr. Corrigan bought a large lot and the home of Catherine Finkbiner on the corner of New and Main Streets.  The House was torn down and the Spring City Hotel was built.  It took 4 years to build the new building.  It had 50 rooms and was a real showplace with gas and electric lights, flushable toilets, hot and cold running water in the bathrooms, steam heat on all floors and dumb waiters to carry food to all the rooms.

        Corrigan sold the hotel in 1925 to Mr. Truman Wade of Phoenixville.    It remained unoccupied for several years.  In 1933, Mr. Wade acquired a liquor license and open the bar.  1n 1933 the Hotel rented some rooms to the Spring City Post Office, which had been previously located on Main and Hall Streets.  The Post Office remained in the Hotel until February 1957, when it moved to its present location on New Street.

       In February of 1951, Mr. Wade sold the Hotel to Dominic Dellaquila, Paul Mastrangelo, and Dominic Mastrangelo.  They remodeled and redecorated the hotel with an ethnic Italian flair.

       In 1954, Mr. Dellaquila bought the interests of his partners. By 1967, the hotel had 28 rooms, 4 apartments, a bar, cocktail lounge, office, restaurant, and various other rooms.  The Hotel was famous for the female impersonators that came from Philadelphia and Reading for weekend shows.

       In 1981, Mr. Dellaquila sold the Hotel to his grandson and wife, Bill and Debbie Hoffman.  Since then, the pub has been remodeled.   The office relocated making room for a small dining area that holds 30 people.  The new owners completely remodeled the main dining room with brass and glass accents to create a warm Victorian atmosphere.  A greenhouse was also added on the front of the dining room.  The most recent addition has been to the pub area where local artist Patrick Young painted a mural depicting Spring City in the 1800's.

The spire that is prominent in many old photographs was lost to a fire sometime in the 1970's.

The hotel once served as a bomb shelter. The sign is still posted on the side porch.
