Washington & Jefferson College Preservation Plan


Following its successful 2005 Campus Heritage Grant for preservation planning at four schools in western Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation is now taking the same approach to four schools in south western Pennsylvania—California University of Pennsylvania, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Seton Hill University, and Washington and Jefferson College. Founded in 1852, California University of Pennsylvania, includes Romanesque and Colonial Revival styles supplemented by a number of mid-twentieth century red brick classrooms. The earliest building on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus dates to 1868, but the university also has a number of significant mid-twentieth century buildings. Seton Hill sits on 200 picturesque acres, while Washington and Jefferson College boasts two of the oldest academic buildings in Pennsylvania. Although all four schools are committed to the responsible stewardship of their historic resources, none of them has the individual capacity to develop a historic preservation plan. Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation is coordinating a team of experts to assess the historic buildings on the four campuses, and create preservation plans for each school.

Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation received a Getty grant in 2007 for $200,000 to support campus heritage planning.
