So it was with great sadness while driving along Coxcomb Hill Road in Plum Boro and I saw them ripping into and removing the abandoned and dilapidated Alcoa Powder Plant
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the plant at one time produced the powder for Fire works and
and Alcoa has all but left Pittsburgh area and devastated New Kensington when the pulled out of the plant and research center
Developers would rather have a clean pad to develop than work with existing structures they claim cost too much and are impossible to renovate which each and every contractor knows is bull shit if you really want to save a property it can be done Carlow University proved it when they rescued a house everyone said had to go. it all comes down to one word GREED and thats what it is all about nothing else when it comes time to renovate or destroy a historic structure .
