Preservation Pittsburgh is a non-profit advocacy group dedicated to preserving our region's historic, architectural, cultural, and environmental heritage. Its purpose is to assist individuals and organizations in preserving the integrity of the architecture and physical surroundings they value.
Preservation Pittsburgh has been actively nominating a number of buildings and structures to become City Historic Landmarks, which greatly helps to protect buildings from inappropriate exterior renovations and demolition. (Plaques, historic markers, and being listed on the National Register of Historic Places do not provide enough protection, public process, and automatic review if a structure is ever threatened.) The South Side's Oliver Bath House, Schenley Park's tufa bridges, Howe Springs, the former Albright United Methodist Church, Roslyn Place, and former Overbrook Municipal Building are some of our nominations over the past few years.
