Buttresses, Bell Towers, & Breakfast

Since its inception, Wilkinsburg has been recognized as a city of beautiful religious buildings;  its religious art and architecture is unsurpassed in design, quality, and workmanship.  Historic buildings are places and spaces people hold dear and are integral to our past, present, and future.  Wilkinsburg, the City of Churches.

This fall Preservation Pittsburgh will recognize Wilkinsburg’s irreplaceable religious architecture by sponsoring an amateur photography contest open to all residents and congregations in the borough.

Please join us for the awards ceremony, November 5, 2016, at 10:00am, when winners will be selected from two categories, adults and children 12 and under.  Those selected will receive a prize of up to $100 and breakfast will be provided to all participants and their friends.


We hope you will participate in our contest and show off your beautiful historic building!
