And A Saved Rotunda

May 2024
1min read


The rotunda of the Pennsylvania Railroad Station in Pittsburgh—one of the doomed landmarks noted in our February, 1970, issue (“A Wrecker’s Dozen”) —is going to be saved instead of destroyed. We owe the good news to Mrs. Alan E. Wohleber, a charter member of both the American Heritage Society and the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, which was instrumental in saving the structure. Three of the thirteen landmarks have now been spared.

We hope you enjoy our work.
