Lending For Historic Preservation

As the lending arm of PHLF, Landmarks Community Capital Corporation (LCCC)—a non-profit subsidiary— advances the cause of preservation by extending loans to projects that facilitate renovation activities in historic neighborhoods throughout the Pittsburgh region.

Among the projects we financed in 2021, is a $120,000 loan to the Neville House Associates to purchase an 1800s-era barn from a farm in Westmoreland County. It was disassembled and transported to “Woodville”— the John and Pressley Neville House and homestead, c. 1780, Collier Township, Pennsylvania, where it was meticulously reassembled on the grounds of the National Historic Landmark.

The reconstructed historic barn will enable the organization to expand its programs, increasing its organizational capacity as an important historic house and homestead museum in the region. Our organization helped save the historic Neville House from demolition in the 1970s.

Certified by the United States Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), LCC makes sixty percent of its loans in low-to-moderate-income neighborhoods to either for-profit or non-profit developers.

Contact Senior Loan Officer, Rob Wagner (rob@phlf.org or 412-471-5808, ext. 538) for more information or if you wish to discuss your project or to apply for a loan.
