Join us at the historic Mansions on Fifth, a boutique hotel in the restored former McCook Mansion and residences in Shadyside, for a Preservation Advocacy reception to learn about the value of preservation easements as a critical tool in saving historic buildings.

Mansions on Fifth

Located in a stretch of Shadyside that was once famously known as Millionaire’s Row, what is now Mansions on Fifth Hotel was built in 1906 as the home of Willis McCook, a Pittsburgh lawyer and industrialist, who was Henry Clay Frick’s attorney. Designed by the Pittsburgh architectural firm Carpenter & Crocker, the house would go on to serve as a boarding house for many years before its complete restoration and conversion into a boutique hotel.

Join us to learn about our organization’s involvement in helping to save the building from demolition and the restoration of the main house and its sister building. The event will include a tour of the hotel, and you will also learn more about the use of preservation easements and how they can enable you to save and maintain your historic building. Our organization owns a preservation easement on Mansions on Fifth Hotel.

Hors d’oeuvres will be served.
Drinks and other refreshments available for purchase at the bar.
