Protect the Duane Michals Home in McKeesport

My friends at McKeesport Preservation Society have started their first crowdfunding campaign to acquire, stabilize, and preserve the Duane Michals home on High Street in McKeesport. Duane Michals is a legendary photographer who grew up in McKeesport. His childhood home, and the street it was on, is now abandoned and overgrown, like a ghost town. McKeesport Preservation Society intends to buy the property, stabilize the foundation and porch of the house (the rest is sadly falling in), and clean up the grounds. You can read more about the project, and make a donation at the link below.
