Former Pennsylvania National Bank Building


The former Pennsylvania National Bank Building, located at 3480 Butler St., was constructed in 1902-03 to replace the older, three-story bank building that existed on the same site and housed the Lawrence Savings Bank. The current Beaux Arts building, now the offices of one of Pittsburgh’s prominent design firms, creates what is perhaps the most notable entrances into Lawrenceville.

The former Pennsylvania National Bank Building is significant because of its striking use of Beaux Arts design, its association with the architects Louis & Michael Beezer, and because its is a prominent visual feature in Lawrenceville.
