I received the following email this week, and I am hoping that we can help to provide some information about Holy Trinity. The fact that they may consider demolishing the structure is very disturbing. Considering the condition of the building, it is understandable why its demise is a real possibility. If there is any way to save, preserve, and restore Holy Trinity, I pray that it happens.
My name is Paul Bench, I represent a historical architecture preservation society called Preservation Pittsburgh. It has recently come to our attention that the old Holy Trinity Church on First Ave, might be slated for demolition. In effort to better understand the situation and historical value we are turning to the community for any information regarding HT’s history, stories, traditions, etc. Any information you might provide could be helpful, especially if you happen to know the current owner or any current plans. If you know anyone who might be able to provide more information about this beautiful building I would appreciate their contact information. Thank you for your time, and any information you can provide.
