Bus Tour: Greensburg & the Westmoreland Museum of American Art

July 27, 2024

Established in the late 18th century, Greensburg presents the history of Western Pennsylvania in microcosm. From a small town, it developed into a center of trade and commerce in the early 19th century because of its proximity to transit routes. Later, the area’s abundant coal fueled both local industrialization and growth of the city. Today, the City’s economy revolves around professional services, activities at the County courthouse, and local colleges. Downtown Greensburg has a historic district that includes numerous handsome buildings in typical turn-of-the-19th-century historicizing styles.

Our program will start with a drive-through tour of the Academy Hill Historic District, an 11-block area of homes built for upper- and middle-income families between 1880 and 1948. The featured event will be a docent-guided tour of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art—the cultural gem of the area, and an excellent example of a traditionally styled building accommodating a contemporary addition.

This program will conclude with a reception at a nearby historic home designed Peter Berndtson and Cornelia Brierly.

Tour meeting point: Station Square, Pittsburgh, PA 15219. Instructions for parking and meeting the bus will be provided to registrants in advance of the tour. The bus will depart at 12:00 noon sharp.
