The inherited architectural legacy of Bellevue is among the most diverse in the greater Pittsburgh region. From Italianate mansions, to Colonial Revival cottages, to Mid-Century ranches, historic buildings are perhaps our Borough’s greatest asset. But how do we forge a future for Bellevue while respecting our past? This mini-course will examine the varied architectural styles prevalent in Bellevue while fostering a discussion about available preservation tools. Attention will also be focused on appropriate and inappropriate methods for adapting our historic buildings for the twenty-first century.
