Allegheny North Churches, Pittsburgh, PA

These two very different churches lie blocks from each other on West North Avenue. With the changing demographics of the area, they are threatened as their congregations continue to shrink. The Greek Orthodox church has already made plans to move to a new site outside the city in the next few years.

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church built from 1958-60, architect James Mitchell, who was one of the architects of the currently threatened Mellon Arena-another significant mid-century structure.

In addition to the central core, the church also has one-story brick pavilions flanking either side of it.

Nearby is the Allegheny United Methodist Church, now New Hope United Methodist. It was constructed in 1971.
