PRTV to Broadcast Program About History, Future of Pittsburgh Cut Flower Property

Allegheny Land Trust plans to buy the property that was once the home of a thriving flower-growing operation.

In case you missed it ...

A program that chronicled the past and envisioned the future of the former Pittsburgh Cut Flower property in Richland Township will be broadcast on PRTV.

Dozens of people gathered for the program earlier this month at Northern Tier Regional Library that was hosted by Allegheny Land Trust, the nonprofit that has a $1.4 million contract to buy the 180-acre parcel.

The event was an opportunity for the local community to envision what it wants the former Pittsburgh Cut Flower property along Bakerstown Road/Red Belt to be in the future. In the meantime, photos and artifacts gathered and preserved by historian Brian Newhouse were on display to remind attendees of the past.

Newhouse gave a slide presentation that chronicled the history of the Pittsburgh Cut Flower business.

Then Allegheny Land Trust representatives led a discussion on what the property could be in the future. The trust plans to preserve the majority of the land as green space.
