Long Description:
This fine example of Greek Revival architecture was designed by architect John Chislett, and built in 1836. Serving historically as a tavern and as the home to other businesses, today the building is the headquarters of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. The WPC is the largest private land conservation trust in Pennsylvania, and a great friend of geocaching and waymarking.
