Glenshaw Bus Tour Features Two Historic Homes, Church, & Library

Date: Saturday, April 14, 2012

Time: 1:00 to 5:30 p.m.

Travel with us to Glenshaw, just a few miles north of Pittsburgh, to see a major restoration-in-progress of the Isaac Lightner House (1833) and its two outbuildings––the summer kitchen and springhouse; and to tour the beautifully restored Joseph L. Kirk house (1885) on Glenshaw Avenue, as well as the Glenshaw Valley Presbyterian Church (1885) and the public library.

Sue and Tim Dreier and Steve and Peg Ainey, all PHLF members, are welcoming us to the historic Glenshaw community. After a tour of the library we’ll walk next door to the church, where Mr. Ainey will present a brief illustrated lecture in the social hall on the historical significance of Glenshaw; light refreshments will be provided.

We’ll also tour the picturesque church and hear how a grant from PHLF’s Historic Religious Properties Program helped with critical exterior repairs. The tour will wrap up with visits to two architecturally significant historic homes: the Joseph L. Kirk house (1885, Stick style) has been beautifully restored after seven years of work; the Isaac Lightner House (1833, Greek Revival) and outbuildings are in the midst of being restored. The afternoon will be a memorable one!
