Ep. 32 — Old buildings, new uses: Preserving Pittsburgh

February 15, 2022

In any Pittsburgh neighborhood, you’re likely to find century-old buildings with deep history. Whether they are in good shape isn’t as certain.

 

Preserving our past or, more specifically, finding new uses for it is central to the mission of the Young Preservationists Association, a nonprofit that shines a spotlight on underserved historic sites in the community and invites young people to have a voice in preservation. YPA Executive Director Matthew Craig joined us to discuss the group’s goals and work in the community.
