An Evening at the Moreland-Hoffstot – Landmarks Heritage Society Appreciation Event
September 14, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmHeritage Society Members Only - Details Below
The annual Landmarks Heritage Society Appreciation Event will be held on a Wednesday evening, September 14 at the Moreland-Hoffstot house in Shadyside. The Landmarks Heritage Society consists of individuals who have made an annual gift of $1,000 or more, and/or who have included Landmarks as a beneficiary of their estate plan or have made a planned gift. Each year the group is recognized at an architecturally or historically significant landmark.
The Moreland-Hoffstot house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a City-designated historic structure, and has a Landmarks historic marker. It is one of only four remaining homes in what was known as Millionaires’ Row at the beginning of the 20th century. The house is a fine example of early 20th century Victorian architecture. Its basic form, the Grande Trianon at Versailles, had been used by McKim, Mead, and White in “Rosecliff” at Newport, RI. Pittsburgh’s Trianon is a provincial model of the Newport house. The interior decoration of the house is in the same French Renaissance style so evident in the exterior composition and ornamentation.
This is an invitation-only event, and is underwritten by The North Shore Group at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney-New York, Alan Greenberg, Senior Vice President, Financial Advisor, and Matthew A. Thompson, CIMA®, Associate Vice President, Financial Advisor. The North Shore Group is dedicated to assisting families with implementing the most appropriate strategies to transition wealth to both their families and their philanthropic interests.
Persons making qualifying gifts through August 15th will be invited to the event.
