From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

French Creek is a tributary of the Schuylkill River in Berks and Chester counties, Pennsylvania in the United States. French Creek was known as Saukanac Creek.[1]

French Creek travels through French Creek State Park and joins the Schuykill in Phoenixville. French Creek is a designated Pennsylvania Scenic River.

The French Creek valley was an important early industrial region, particularly iron, in the United States. Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site along French Creek interprets this history. The Phoenix Iron Works site in Phoenixville, an active iron and steel producer from colonial times until the late 20th century, sits astride the creek just before it joins the Schuylkill.
