Meet Brian Bevan, Esq., Preservation Pittsburgh's Newest Director

Brian Bevan

Brian joined the Board of Directors in October, 2015.  Brian grew up in the Allison Park area before moving to North Carolina for college.  After earning a degree in history, Brian taught everything from Ancient and Modern to Middle Eastern History while working as a history teacher, coach and dorm parent at The Gunnery, a co-ed independent boarding/day school in Connecticut.  About ten years ago Brian decided to pursue a law degree from the Pennsylvania State University Dickenson School of Law.  After graduating and passing the bar in 2009, Brian returned to Pittsburgh.  Since then, he has worked as a civil and criminal litigator in private practice and for a locally-based corporation.  As a Pittsburgh native and lifetime history buff, Brian has always enjoyed learning about the rich and unique history and architecture of Western Pennsylvania.  Brian's involvement with preservation began with his work as pro bono counsel for a group of preservation-minded individuals working to preserve, redevelop, and re-use the Albright United Methodist Church in the city's East End.
