Sooo…. who is up for a little road trip to Beaver Falls this weekend!
I’ve been noticing that the two previous posts on the Moltrup Steel Mansion have been getting a lot of visits recently. So I thought I would check back and see if this house was still for sale.
The Multrup Steel Mansion located at 914 8th Ave is still for sale and the price has been reduced to $49,000. There is a new listing agent for the property, Carol Tomayko, her team has been very responsive to questions.

I learned about the Gardener-Bailey house from this photo from Cam Miller (@CatLadyCam) on Instagram. Built in 1864, this building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Does anyone know the history of this grand old Victorian home?
The Gardener-Bailey house, built in 1864, is hidden away on W. Swissvale Ave in Edgewood section of Pittsburgh. It was placed on the National Register in 1974. #housesofpgh #housestalker #archilovers #architecture #detailsmatter #historicpgh
