Learn more about Reading, PA
As the seat of Berks County, Reading is ripe with heritage. During the American Revolution, Reading was a hub of iron production, and therefore able to supply troops with weapons. As a military depot during the Civil War, prisoners were detained in Reading, specifically prisoners from the battle of Trenton. Over time the city experienced economic ups and downs, but one unique, historical structure that has remained is the unusual 7-story pagoda. The Pagoda is perched atop Mt. Penn, and is more than 100 years old. Commissioned as a resort, the pagoda is now a local landmark featuring a café, group tours and event space.
