Post-Gazette.com – The sale of Greensburg’s restored train station ensures that the structure’s historic character will be preserved, preservationists said Thursday.
The station has been sold to StoneKim Properties, a local investment group, for an undisclosed sum. Michael J. Langer, president of the Westmoreland Cultural Trust, said his organization’s mission is to restore cultural and historic buildings and return them to commercial use. In 1993, the nonprofit trust bought the one-story train station.
The building was built in 1910 and opened in 1911 and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1977. Besides the 16,270-square-foot structure, the deal includes a liquor license, 2 acres, 55 parking spaces and two train platforms. The partners in StoneKim Properties are local businessmen
