Butterfly open house directions to 344 W Beech St, Pottstown, Pa 19464
We are located near the intersection of West King St. & Route 100. From Reading go 422 east & then north on Route 100 & make your first left onto West King Street (Pottstown Diner is your landmark) Go 100yards & turn right on Gable Ave. into the complex. Go to the stop sign & turn right. (Gable Ave.) Follow this to the back street & bear left. (Gable Ave.) After you bear left the street turns into West Beech St. It is a colonial blue house with two orange butterflies on the front door– you can’t miss it. A yellow butterfly crossing sign will be on the telephone pole in front of the house.
From Boyertown – Allentown – take 100 South & turn right onto West King St. Use the same directions from there. Please do not go to Beech Street – we don’t live there. We live on West Beech Street, off of West King Street in the Pottsgrove Manor development.
