The Church of the Assumption turns from black to gold.
Workers from Marsa Inc. Masonry Contractor have been working to remove 122 years of dirt from the outside of Shadyside Church since earlier this month. The month-long project also includes masonry repairs.
Designated a Historic Landmark in 1971, the church was one of eleven churches to receive a renovation grant from the Pittsburgh History & Landmark Foundation’s Grant Program for Historic Religious Properties this year.
