History center volunteers preparing for the renovation

Renovation

The Historical Society is starting the Phase 1 renovations to our property at 794 Washington Road to transform and adaptively reuse the property as a permanent, expanded History Center for our community and region. Here is a link from Mt. Lebanon Magazine detailing this significant event: http://www.lebomag.com/a-fixer-upper/

During this construction we will need to shut down the History Center, however, we will continue to develop and provide our programs and services to the community such as an expanded speakers’ series program, Walking Tours and Historic District Medallion sales. Please check our website for progress on our renovations and the date for re-opening.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at: info@lebohistory.org or 412-329-8595.
