|Hitzrot House - McKeesport - Photographed in May, 2014|
The location of the Hitzrot House was once an affluent residential area adjacent to the downtown McKeesport business district. There are still a few old houses remaining in the vicinity that recall McKeesport's early Coal Era, Railroad, and Steel boom years.
The Hitzrot House is one of the most endangered historic structures in our region. It has recently been acquired by the City of McKeesport and demolition may be pending. The building requires extensive renovations and is in desperate need of a developer.
