Historic Harrisburg Announces Plan for Resource Center Renovations

Harrisburg, Pa. – (August 3, 2011) – The Historic Harrisburg Association is excited to announce plans to restore the Historic Harrisburg Resource Center located in the heart of Midtown, Harrisburg.  With the recent developments of HACC Midtown, Campus Square, the upcoming Furlow Building, and the Susquehanna Art Museum, the Third Street Corridor is becoming a thriving business and arts district. Historic Harrisburg plans to add to the excitement with plans to restore and transform its brownstone bank building, across from the Broad Street Market, into a community and cultural hub.

The Resource Center is a grand structure with a rich history, and restoring the building to be a suitable property for more visitors and daily use by the community will require an aggressive effort. The Resource Center is in need of substantial upgrades, including major renovations to the main banking hall, community room, and second floor office space, which will require improvements in several phases.

In order to successfully complete the project, Historic Harrisburg is calling on community members, business leaders, foundations, and neighbors to contribute to the effort.  No contribution is too small. Contributions made during the first phase of the project will be matched, up to $50,000, by funds received from Preservation Pennsylvania.  With the public’s help, Historic Harrisburg has a unique opportunity to raise funds for the first phase of improvements and begin planning future phases right away.

The first phase includes restoration of the skylight and second floor and is expected to be finished by November 2011, providing the community joins Historic Harrisburg in its mission. Subsequent phases of necessary improvements, which include renovations to the basement, heating, cooling upgrades and continued renovations to the main banking hall are scheduled to begin as funding goals are achieved.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the Resource Center Improvement Project can mail their contribution to:  

Historic Harrisburg Association
PO Box 1843
Harrisburg, PA 17105-1843 

or visit www.historicharrisburg.com/donate

Donors contributing $250 or more will have the opportunity to be listed on a plaque for their efforts in helping to restore one of Harrisburg's prized treasures.
