Description

The Landmarks Housing Resource Center is a program of the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation to serve as a resource center for homeowners, prospective homeowners, re-developers and landlords.

Founded in 1964, the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation (PHLF) support the preservation of historic buildings and neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. It is known nation-wide for its pioneering work in restoring inner-city neighborhoods without dislocating the people who live there.

The center itself is an excellent example of successful reuse. It was once an auto repair shop and luxury car showroom that in recent years became yet another empty and tattered building. Today it is a handsomely renovated red brick structure that hosts meetings and workshops that touched on crime and violence awareness, home maintenance and weatherization, urban gardening and youth programs.
