Point State Park Cultural Resources Master Plan

Pittsburgh, PA
Point State Park is the heart of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the natural and historical seed of the region—the confluence of the three rivers that define the city. Today, the 36-acre urban state park commemorates and preserves the strategic and historical heritage of the area while symbolizing Pittsburgh’s rebirth in the 20th century.
Scope
We worked with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the State Historic Preservation Office to develop a Cultural Resources Management Plan (CRMP) – the first for any state park in the Commonwealth.
Outcome
The CRMP is aiding in effective management and preservation of the park’s extensive historical properties, which include a National Historic Landmark, while also serving as an example for the development of other park-specific CRMPs throughout the state.
