Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation is offering a Live Virtual Architecture Tour of Upper Penn and Liberty Avenues. There is much to admire on this tour of the compact area bounded by Penn and Liberty Avenues and Ninth and Tenth Streets in Downtown Pittsburgh, where commerce and rail transportation merged in the late 19th century. The vast majority of the historic commercial buildings in this area were constructed between 1884 and 1916, at the height of the Gilded Age.
The tour explores this ravishing architectural legacy, as well as preservation’s important role in bringing vitality back to the district. Contemporary landmarks, that seal the district’s identity as a microcosm of Downtown’s commerce and culture, round out the tour.
This Live Virtual Architecture Tour will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, February 24 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Live Virtual Architecture Tour: Upper Penn-Liberty event page.
