Documenting historic buildings before they are gone, in Pittsburgh and beyond.
The front door on the second from last house suggests circa 1850 construction. The fourth from last house also looks 1850-ish or a little earlier. The small second-story window looks like adaptation of the Greek Revival style to a small house form. Very sweet house, I haven't seen something exactly like that around here before. Thanks for documenting these places!
Thanks, Carol! It's so awesome to have a historian comment on some of the houses and tell me how old they might be. I have only been able to guess so far. The houses second and fourth from last are both in East Deutschtown. It's amazing that the one has its original door. The house at the bottom is at 841 Suismon. I actually wrote to the owner, trying to buy it, and was contacted by a lawyer in charge of the deceased owner's estate. They let me go inside the house and would've sold it to me, but after seeing the water damage inside I didn't think I could handle the project on my own. It's such a great house, but like many it has deteriorated so far.
I absolutely LOVE this site and all of your efforts.
