Top Ten Sites Listed for Preservation

Main Street Waynesburg in Greene County topped the list of ten sites that the Young Preservationists Association of Pittsburgh deems preservation worthy. This is the ninth year the Association has created the list and Chief Executive Officer,Dan Holland says the sites have to meet a certain criteria to make it onto the list: "Historical and architectural significance, community input, is there a threat to the site, and most importantly - the feasibility of the solution." Other buildings on the list include Connellsville Armory in Connellsville Fayette County, Wigman House in Carrick and the Westinghouse Atom Smasher in Forest Hills. Holland says they'll also be giving away a Promise Award to students and teachers at Pittsburgh's Peabody High School in recognition of a book they're writing about the city's East End. A celebration of Preservation Month takes place Friday, May 6. More information can be found at
