This month we focus on the historic “McIlvain Block” at 254 W. Main St. This building has seen an amazing transformation in the last two months thanks to a group of young entrepreneurs who decided to make a serious investment in downtown and participated in the Monongahela Facade Grant Project. They have taken their project on in a way that is deeply respectful of their neighbors and of our community’s historic and architectural character. Other topics: Henderson’s Five and Ten, typhoid, Woolworths, Grodecour’s Drug Store, Moravian tile, MMSP’s Holiday Pop-Up Shop, Christmas Tree Planters, MARC’s Christmas Decorating Contest and the Monongahela Riverfront Walkability Project community meeting.
