Wilkinsburg Sacred Spaces

A Project of the Religious Architectural Heritage Committee of Preservation Pittsburgh

The 2021 Wilkinsburg Sacred Spaces Virtual Tour, a video with thoughtful interviews and historical and visual insights, is at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwo7Yp5d2geFPLww_Hlf5-A/featured.

Sue Duff Jackson writes, “It has been called the Holy City sometimes in derision. May it be the City Holy in all that the word implies. In civic right and civic righteousness and may it become the city beautiful. Spare the landmarks where we can. Teach the children to respect the past and build for the future, and spare the trees—one of the town’s great assets.”
