PHLF was founded in 1964 by a group of citizens who passionately believed that historic preservation, rather than massive demolition, could be a tool for renewing communities, creating pride among residents, and stimulating the economy. At the time, vast amounts of public money were being spent to replace some of Pittsburgh’s most historic neighborhoods and commercial areas with characterless architecture, parking lots and roadways. After more than four decades of work in Allegheny County, PHLF has shown that architectural landmarks and historic neighborhoods are community assets and that historic preservation can be a catalyst for urban renewal.For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Pittsburgh holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
