Check out the gallery of 35 photos below to see some of the places you will see during PHLF’s tour of Tarentum and Natrona on Saturday, April 25, from 1:00 to 4:45 p.m. “We are grateful to Cindy Homburg and David Rankin of Tarentum,” said PHLF’s Executive Director Louise Sturgess, “and to Bill Godfrey of Natrona. They are leading preservation efforts in the two Allegheny-river communities and have created a wonderful tour for up to 40 of our members and friends.”

Participants will meet in Tarentum, where the afternoon event begins with a Dutch-treat lunch at the former train station. Then, the group will tour the Masonic Temple, Eureka Hose Company (where one of the fire trucks that helped fight Pittsburgh’s Great Fire in 1845 is displayed), a public school that has been converted into an office building, and Central Presbyterian Church, with beautifully restored windows.

Participants will then follow First Avenue to Natrona and meet at Bill Godfrey’s studio and home (featuring an incredible interior) and sip Natrona soda pop! After seeing the breathtaking interior of  St. Joseph Church, participants will see the PennSalt worker’s housing and explore the community park featuring mosaics celebrating Natrona’s rich history.
