Supporting 500 Donner Project, Monessen, Pa.

Monessen resident, Matt Shorraw, is leading a campaign to acquire 500 Donner Ave., Monssen, Pa. and convert the building into a Music Center that would include small, neighborhood retail.  The Beaux Arts building was originally constructed in 1905 and served as the home of the Monessen Savings and Trust Company and served most recently as the former home of Health Mart.  Unfortunately the building has fallen into disrepair but Mr. Shorraw's plan to acquire and repurpose the building is formidable and Preservation Pittsburgh has written a letter of support to Monessen's City Council in support of his plan.
