Allegheny County Courthouse Heirloom Bench Project
|22 Courthouse Benches Sponsored: More Needed
Visit the Allegheny County Courthouse––Pittsburgh’s most significant architectural landmark––and you’ll see that handsomely carved benches, each inscribed with a donor’s name, are replacing the motley collection of inappropriate chairs that once cheapened the historic corridors. You, too, can carve your name in history by sponsoring a Courthouse bench. We thank the following sponsors:
Help furnish H. H. Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse in downtown Pittsburgh with a limited edition of heirloom benches exclusively designed by County Architect Samuel Taylor and hand built here in Pittsburgh by Wilson & McCracken.
Each solid White Oak bench features mortise and tenon construction, hidden dovetails, and a finish that matches the original 19th-century millwork in the Courthouse. Your name, or the name of someone you would like to honor, is carved in the front of the bench and becomes a permanent tribute to your generosity and vision. In addition, a 6? x 2? engraved bronze plaque may be affixed to the top of the bench back rest acknowledging you or your organization’s gift.
- Sponsor one bench and dedicate it to the person/organization of your choice with a $4,200 contribution, payable to PHLF and fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
