In the 1930's and 40's my father would take the trolley from Pottstown to the Ringing Rocks amusement park located on Keim Street in Lower Pottsgrove Township. When I was a kid in the 70's we used to ice skate and play hockey on the pond, it had pillars in the water that supported the trolley but they have been removed. There are still some bungalow type of houses on the hill that people live in, the powerplant is still there on the curve overlooking the pond and is currently occupied as well. The house shown here was the concession stand for the park and a year or two after I took these photos the house was torn down. I never recall anyone living in the house from the 1970's onward. The bridge still stands and is a lovely walkway to the glacially arranged ringing rocks (they ring when you hit them with a hammer). My father was working on a painting of this house but never finished it before he passed away.
