The Penn-Liberty Corridor in Downtown Pittsburgh is one of the best-preserved and most-intact surviving portions of the Golden Triangle’s turn-of-the-20th-century retail and commercial district. Featuring numerous excellent examples of the Richardsonian Romanesque by local architects as well as sturdy, handsome structures designed by an owner working only with a builder, the district comprises a remarkable collection of historic buildings.
The Penn-Liberty Tour focuses on a 14-block area within the district that the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has transformed since 1984 from an area of derelict and underused buildings to a singular agglomeration of venues for the performing and visual arts. The Penn-Liberty Cultural District tour highlights historic preservation’s power to re-define and remake neighborhoods.
Sponsored by the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, this Live Virtual Architecture Tour of the Penn-Liberty Cultural District will be held via Zoom on Thursday, January 21 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm.
