Titusville Towne Square, Titusville, PA

On September 24-25, The Titusville Renaissance, with financial assistance from the Oil Region Alliance of Business, Industry and Tourism, Crawford Heritage Community Foundation, and Farmers National Bank, hosted a 2-day workshop entitled The Buck Starts Here; Historic Preservation Made Affordable. The program provided information on key aspects of a preservation project funding, including: Department of Interior Standards; rehabilitation investment tax credits, and Keystone Historic Preservation grants. Presenters included Karen Arnold and Bill Callahan from PHMC, and Erin Hammerstedt from Preservation Pennsylvania.

 

Robert Lingenfelter, WMF Land Development Studio leader and member of the Bellefonte Historical Architectural Review Board (HARB), was a panel member along with representatives from Titusville and Crawford Counties for a Q&A session, focusing on the questions that arise as the workshop attendees formulate their development plans.

 

The workshop was held at Titusville Towne Square, an extensive rehabilitation and phased development of several historic properties in the heart of Titusville’s Commercial District. Support from a Community Development Block Grant, the Pennsylvania Museum Commission, private foundation grants and private investment helped fund this project, for which Weber Murphy Fox provided Development Consulting, Architecture, Interior Design, and Construction Management services. The Towne Square development has been a catalyst for downtown revitalization, attracting new business and industry to the Titusville area.
