For more photo tours, visit: http://historicpittsburgh.blogspot.com

The "Old Stone Tavern" is located in the West End neighborhood of Pittsburgh. It has a "1756" year listed on its cornerstone, which would make it older than the Fort Pitt Blockhouse, and the oldest surviving building in Pittsburgh, if the date is correct. It would also make the tavern the only survivor from French settlement days. The tavern is a very mysterious building and its history is fascinating. It narrowly escaped demolition for a parking lot two years ago, when the city of Pittsburgh Historical Review Commission voted to declare it a historic landmark, thus saving it. However, it currently sits abandoned and neglected.

These photos are courtesy of Jesse Belfast, an architectural historian who was granted access to the interior of the building and took these remarkable pictures.

Music by John Barry, from the "Scarlet Letter" soundtrack.

While it isn't necessarily a photo tour, this old thread has some great pictures of Greensburg: City of Greensburg?

Of course, some things have changed since then; the Palace Theatre is finishing up a huge restoration project, and the Seton Hill Perfomance Art Center has been completed. Plus, there are tons of other interesting buildings in downtown Greensburg that are not included. It'd be cool if someone did a true photo tour of Greensburg.

If anyone is really interested, there are some more pics of Greensburg on these sites:

Academy Hill Historic District (Greensburg, Pennsylvania) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Greensburg, Pennsylvania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Greensburg Downtown Historic District (Greensburg, Pennsylvania) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

City of Greensburg, PA - Home

The Westmoreland Museum of Art is about to undergo a huge addition, in which its size will be doubled. So, that building's appearance will be changing in the near future.

I always thought that Greensburg had a lot of potential. The downtown area looks almost perfectly preserved, very few empty lots or urban prairie.
